KRMC named among 100 great community hospitals
Kalispell Regional Medical Center was one of two hospitals in Montana to be named on Becker's Healthcare 2018 edition of its 100 Great Community Hospitals list.
This list includes independent community hospitals as well as facilities affiliated with large health systems. Some hospitals serve expansive rural geographies, while others care for small communities outside of large cities. Many of the hospitals have been recognized for their clinical quality, operational excellence and economic impact on the surrounding areas. For the purposes of this list, Becker's defines a community hospital as a facility with no more than 550 beds.
The Becker's editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on several outside rankings and ratings organizations, including IBM Watson Health 100 Top Hospitals, iVantage Health Analytics and The Chartis Center for Rural Health's Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals, CareChex ratings, Leapfrog Group grades, Healthgrades awards and CMS stars, among other considerations.
This the third consecutive year that Kalispell Regional Medical Center has earned this designation.
