[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.92″ background_layout=”light”] Becker’s Healthcare recently announced the 2018 edition of the “66 Critical Access Hospitals to know” list, highlighting 66 of the nation’s Certified Critical Access hospitals (CAHs). Orange City Area Health System was among the CAH facilities nationwide receiving this recognition. Critical Access Hospitals have 25 or fewer inpatient beds, and the annual average length of stay is 96 hours or fewer for acute care. These hospitals also offer 24/7 emergency care and are located in remote areas. Many hospitals featured on this list have been recognized for clinical quality and excellence in care delivery. “They have become pillars of their communities, providing access to healthcare for a broad population,” according to Becker’s. Becker’s Healthcare editors selected the 66 hospitals based on awards and rankings from respected organizations including iVantage Health Analytics, The Chartis Group, the National Rural Health Association, CareChex, Healthgrades and Medicare star ratings. The team also considered the hospital’s community impact and reputation for innovation. Becker’s Hospital Review has published a version of this list since 2015. The full list features individual profiles of all hospitals on the list.
