Staff report Steamboat Pilot & Today

For the second year in a row, UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center is one of 100 Great Community Hospitals, according to the 2018 list announced by Becker’s Hospital Review. The list includes independent community hospitals as well as facilities affiliated with large health systems. For the purpose of this list, Becker’s defines a community hospital as a facility with no more than 550 beds. Many of the hospitals have been recognized for their clinical quality, operational excellence and economic impact on the surrounding areas.
The Becker’s editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on several outside rankings and ratings organizations, including IMB Watson Health 100 Top Hospitals, iVantage Health Analytics and The Chartis Center for Rural Health’s Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals, CareChex ratings, Leapfrog Group grades, Healthgrades awards and CMS stars, among other considerations.
