CHI St. Alexius Carrington named Top 20 Critical Access Hospital


April 20, 2020

CHI St. Alexius Health Carrington was recently named a 2020 Top 20 Critical Access Hospital for overall performance in the country. This is the sixth time since 2014 that the hospital has been recognized with the Top 20 distinction.

The Top 20 Critical Access Hospital “winners” are those hospitals who have achieved success in the overall performance based on a composite rating from eight indices of strength: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, cost, charge and financial stability.  

“CHI St. Alexius Health, Carrington is very proud of the efforts of its medical providers and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation for the sixth time,” said Mariann Doeling, RN, President of CHI St. Alexius Health, Carrington. “Our results as a top overall performing hospital in the United States means the communities we serve can count on us to deliver the local healthcare services they need.”

CHI St. Alexius Health, Carrington is one of ONLY two critical access hospitals in the United States to have won the Top 20 distinction six times in the overall performance category.

“It truly is the dedication of the medical providers, administration, and staff working at our organization that makes this distinction possible,” comments Doeling. “We’re thankful the community chooses to receive their healthcare locally, as that certainly makes an impact.”

CHI St. Alexius Health, Carrington began delivering its healthcare mission in 1916, and is now part of CommonSpirit Health, a nonprofit, Catholic health system dedicated to advancing health for all people. CommonSpirit Health was created in February 2019 through the alignment of Catholic Health Initiatives and Dignity Health.
