Sheridan Memorial Hospital Named Among Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals For 2024 By Chartis


Sheridan Memorial Hospital (SMH) has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the country for 2024, according to The Chartis Center for Rural Health. This is the ninth year in a row SMH has earned this honor.

More than 800 hospitals were included in the study, with the Top 100 list developed using the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX®. The index assesses performance utilizing 37 independent indicators across eight areas of performance including quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charges and finance.

“I am proud of the expertise and commitment of our medical staff, our clinical care teams and all of our supporting staff in all aspects of our health system,” said Mike McCafferty, Sheridan Memorial Hospital CEO. “Every day they create a culture demonstrating our shared principles of respect for every individual, continuous process improvement and alignment across all areas of service. This shapes the environment in which we are able to provide value and an outstanding experience for our patients. Their commitment to these principles helps us continually strive for operational excellence.”

Now in its 14th year, the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX® is leveraged nationwide by rural hospitals, health systems with rural affiliates, hospital associations, and state offices of rural health to measure and monitor performance across a variety of areas impacting hospital operations and finance.

“During an era of profound uncertainty for rural healthcare, the Top 100 rural hospitals continue to provide a unique lens through which we can identify innovation and inspiration for how to deliver high quality care to increasingly vulnerable populations,” said Michael Topchik, national leader for The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
