LARNED – On Nov. 16, Pawnee Valley Community Hospital (PVCH) in Larned was recognized with a 2023 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Quality. This recognition is PVCH’s third consecutive year to receive the national quality recognition.

Compiled by the Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (i.e., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals across our Nation. 

“Our hospital’s history is rooted in rural healthcare, and our future is committed to ensuring our community has access to high-quality care,” said Melanie Urban, administrator. “Living in a rural community should never mean that our residents are sacrificing quality health care. Every member of our Pawnee Valley team is devoted to providing high-quality care. This recognition validates their efforts and drive as high-quality care is a commitment we prioritize.”

The Performance Leadership Awards are based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.
