Out of more than 2,700 acute care hospitals, Logan Health Medical Center ranked 37th in the country

For the second year in a row, Logan Health Medical Center (LHMC) in Kalispell has been named one of the top hospitals in the United States for social responsibility according to the Lown Institute, a national nonpartisan and independent healthcare think tank. LHMC was listed as one of just 5% of hospitals in the country to earn Honor Roll status with “A” grades across all top categories: Social Responsibility, Health Equity, Value of Care, Patient Outcomes, Community Benefit, Avoiding Overuse and Cost Efficiency. In addition, LHMC was also ranked a Top Hospital for Fair Share Spending and the #1 hospital in Montana for Social Responsibility, Clinical Outcomes and Community Benefit.

“Our commitment will always be to provide the highest quality of care to our patients and our community,” says Kevin Abel, president of Logan Health Medical Center. “This recognition is a testament to the conscious and sustained efforts we have made to provide high quality health care every opportunity we have. From improving patient outcomes to ensuring equitable access to care, we are continuously pushing ourselves to elevate the standards of excellence in health care. Being recognized for our social responsibility is incredibly rewarding and reinforces our dedication to making a positive impact in our community.”

The 2024-25 Lown Hospitals Index for Social Responsibility is the only ranking to combine metrics of health equity and value of care alongside patient outcomes, for more than 3,500 hospitals nationwide – offering a holistic view of hospitals as total community partners. Lown’s fifth annual Index evaluates hospitals on over 50 measures, including novel metrics such as community benefit, racial inclusivity, and avoidance of overuse. Data sources include Medicare fee-for service and Medicare Advantage claims, CMS patient safety data and hospital cost reports, and IRS 990 forms, among others.

“Great care is only great if everyone can access it,” said Vikas Saini, MD, president of the Lown Institute. “We need hospitals that are not only leaders in clinical care, but also strong community partners – and the hospitals at the top of our list are showing the way.”
