IRON RIVER, MI-- Aspirus Iron River Hospital has been named one of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the U.S.
The rankings come from iVantage Health Analytics and the Chartis Center for Rural Health. Aspirus Ironwood was also included on the list. It and Aspirus Iron River were the only hospitals in Michigan to receive the designation.
Officials say the iVantage index measures facilities across eight pillars of hospital strength: inpatient share ranking, outpatient share ranking, cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, and financial stability.
