Geisinger Lewistown Hospital ranked among the top 100 rural and community hospitals for the third time

LEWISTOWN, Pa. - The Chartis Center for Rural Health recently released its annual list of the top 100 rural and community hospitals in the United States. Geisinger Lewistown Hospital is on it for the third year.

To determine the 2024 list, the Chartis Center used the Hospital Strength Index, which assesses performance in eight areas: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge and financial efficiency.

"Our teams work hard every day to deliver high-quality care to our patients - care that's providing positive patient outcomes and changing lives," said Tammy Anderer, chief administrative officer for Geisinger's western region. "This honor goes out to all our teams for making such a positive impact. Together, we're making better health easier for our patients and communities.

The 100 top-performing rural and community hospitals in the United States, listed by state, are here.
