Jackson County Hospital District recognized for patient satisfaction

The Jackson County Hospital District was recognized by a rural health care organization for its excellence in patient care.

The Jackson County Hospital District was named one of the country’s top critical access hospitals for patient care by a nationwide rural health organization.

The Chartis Center for Rural Health recognized the Edna hospital as a high-scoring facility on patient satisfaction, according to a news release. To develop the list, the Chartis Center reviewed and scored critical access hospitals, which are rural hospitals that have been designated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. There are more than 1,300 such hospitals in the U.S. and 85 in Texas, according to a news release from the Jackson County hospital.

“Jackson County Hospital District is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” Bill Jones, the hospital’s CEO, said in a statement. “We are honored to receive this recognition but are not surprised.”

The recognition was announced by the National Rural Health Association.
