RUMFORD — Bridgton Hospital and Rumford Hospital, both part of Central Maine Healthcare, have earned a 2022 Performance Leadership Award from the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX. This index is considered “the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance in the United States.”

The Performance Leadership Awards recognize the performance of the top 25% of rural hospitals in the country based on “Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspective.”

Rumford Hospital received the award for Patient Perspective. Stephany Jacques, RN, VP of Nursing and Patient Services at Rumford Hospital, said, “There is nothing more important to all of our team members here at Rumford Hospital than providing the highest quality of care to our patients.”

Bridgton Hospital was chosen to receive this national award based on Outcomes. “I’m extremely proud of how our team members have met this challenge and have kept our patients and the community at the center of everything we do,” said Jill Rollins, RN, Director of Nursing and Patient Care Services at Bridgton Hospital.

According to Chartis, there is no better evidence of the value that rural hospitals provide to their communities than the recognition of being a top-performing facility.
