Granville Health System Receives Performance Leadership Award for Patient Outcomes from Chartis Center for Rural Health

Granville Health System, one of North Carolina’s leading rural health care providers, today announced it has been recognized with a 2022 Chartis Rural Hospital Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Patient Outcomes. Compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (e.g., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals throughout the US in Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspective.

“Granville Health System is very pleased to be recognized for its excellence in patient outcomes by The Chartis Center for Rural Health,” said John F. Snow, CEO, Granville Health System. “The entire team at Granville Health System remains committed to serving the health and wellness needs of Granville County.”

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. INDEX data is trusted and relied upon by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, hospital associations and state offices of rural health across the country to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.

“Although the last two years have placed unprecedented pressure on the rural health safety net, the dedication to serving the community that we’re so accustomed to seeing from rural hospitals across the country hasn’t wavered,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Let us celebrate the power of rural and honor the facilities working tirelessly to provide access to high quality healthcare services to their communities.”
