VCHS Named Top 100 Critical Access Hospital

Valley County Health System has been recognized as a 2024 Top 100 Critical Access Hospital by The Chartis Center for Rural Health. Chartis’ annual Top 100 award program recognizes outstanding performance among the nation’s rural hospitals based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX®.

“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, The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

“This prestigious honor is a testament to the hard work, compassion, and dedication of each one of our employees.” says CEO Nancy Glaubke “Together, we have achieved an outstanding level of care that sets us apart not just as a facility in Nebraska, but in the Nation.”

Now in its 14th year, the INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Featuring a methodology utilizing publicly available data, the 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.

VCHS is honored to receive this recognition. We are motivated to continue meeting our mission of providing progressive care with compassion for years to come.
