Bookmark and Share

When it comes to medical care, timing is critical. A 20-mile commute to a major hospital may not be an option. That’s where critical access hospitals come in. They are our rural communities’ safety nets for care. And lucky for Logan County residents, their safety net is one of the best in the nation.

Mercy Hospital Logan County, formerly Logan Medical Center, was named a Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in America at the National Rural Health Association’s Critical Access Hospital Conference.

“We are so pleased with this honor on behalf of Logan County,” said Di Smalley, president of Mercy in Oklahoma. “We are proud to now be a part of their team.”

The ranking is based on 56 measures of performance including the size and growth of the facility, patient perspectives, competitive strengths, and patient outcomes. Of the 34 critical access hospitals in the state, Mercy Hospital Logan County was the only Oklahoma hospital on the list.

“This recognition is further proof of the progress and potential of our hospital,” said Richard Blankenship, chairman of the Mercy Hospital Logan County board of directors. “The strength of our hospital is rooted in the strength of our community, and we are excited to continue improving to meet the needs of our neighbors.”

A critical access hospital is defined as a rural hospital with 25 beds or less that provides 24-7 emergency care.
