Syracuse Area Health – Strasburger Orthopaedics

Syracuse Area Health Awarded for Being in the Top 1.47% of Critical Access Hospitals

Strasburger Orthopaedics is proud to be a part of the Syracuse Area Health network, which has recently been named in the country’s top 20 out of 1353 critical access hospitals (CAH) for patient satisfaction, putting them in the top 1.47%. The National Rural Health Association (NRHA), a nonprofit dedicated to improving the healthcare and livelihood of rural Americans, recently announced the news and will be holding the awards ceremony at their September conference in Kansas City, MO. The NRHA narrowed the top 20 CAHs down from the top 100 list published by the Chartis Center for Rural Health earlier this year. This ranking is based on several factors, including inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge, and finance.

When asked about the award, Syracuse Area Health CEO Michael Harvey stated, “Syracuse Area Health is proud of the efforts of the physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation. Our results as a top patient satisfaction recipient means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future. I could not be more proud of our staff at Syracuse Area Health for winning this prestigious award. Our goal is to provide the best possible care for each patient we serve, and I am extremely thankful to work with such a great team.”

As a community-first organization, Syracuse Area Health has always been driven by the benefit to its patients and community members. This award is just one more way that Syracuse Area Health continues to raise the bar for healthcare in Syracuse and the surrounding areas. We strongly believe in giving back to the community that has given so much to us, which is why we are proud to be partnered with Syracuse Area Health. 

Syracuse Area Health has been serving Southeast Nebraska for over 70 years, and will continue to do so with the same level of excellence that it has always been known for. This award is an incredible accomplishment, and we at Syracuse Area Health – Strasburger Orthopaedics are honored to be a part of an organization dedicated to providing the highest quality of care possible for its patients.
