For the seventh consecutive year, Brookings Health System has been included by The Chartis Center for Rural Health on the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals list.

The annual recognition program honors outstanding performance among the nation’s rural hospitals.

Health System President and CEO Jason Merkley says, “to consistently be recognized as a rural and community hospital leader demonstrates the high caliber of quality healthcare Brookings Health delivers to our community day-in and day-out.”

Hospitals make the list based on performance indicators that span market, value and finance based categories.
