SIOUX FALLS, S.D. Sanford Luverne Medical Center has been named a 2022 top 100 critical access hospital by the Chartis Center for Rural Health. This is the sixth time in the past seven years Luverne has made the top 100 list. A total of five locations in Minnesota made the list this year.

“I am incredibly proud of the team that we have at Sanford Luverne and the hard work and dedication they demonstrate every day to provide quality health care to our community,” said Tammy Loosbrock, senior director of Sanford Luverne. “I’m reminded every day how grateful we are to have a strong team of caregivers in Luverne but having an organization like Chartis recognize their hard work as well is remarkable.”

The Chartis Center uses the Hospital Strength Index to determine the list, which assesses performance in eight areas, including inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge, and financial efficiency.
