As part of the National Rural Health Day Celebration, Riverside Health System is pleased to announce that Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital (RSMH) has been recognized with a 2023 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Patient Outcomes. Compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (e.g., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspective. 

“The Eastern Shore is a close-knit community, and we strive to live the Riverside mission – to care for others as we would care for those we love – each and every day,” says Nick Chuquin, President of RSMH. “Receiving the Chartis Performance Leadership Award is a true honor, and this recognition is a testament to the exceptional care our team provides to patients.” 

The Performance Leadership Awards are based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX™, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. INDEX data is trusted and relied upon by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, hospital associations and state offices of rural health across the country to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance. 

“Wherever we go in rural America, we witness first-hand the commitment, determination, and compassion with which rural hospitals serve their communities. Rural healthcare truly is mission-driven,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “This National Rural Health Day, let us recognize the efforts of this year’s Performance Leadership Award winners and all those driven to deliver high quality care throughout rural communities.”
