Becker's Hospital Review has released the 2017 edition of its list of 61 Critical Access Hospitals CEOs to Know. Iowa Specialty Hospitals & Clinics is proud to announce Amy McDaniel, Belmond CEO, has been named to this prestigious list.
“This is a well-deserved honor, as Amy lives and breathes Iowa Specialty Hospitals & Clinics – Belmond,” shared Steve Simonin, ISH President & CEO. “Her dedication to excellent service, high quality, and great financials is clearly evident in her leadership. We are so lucky to have her in this role on our team.” McDaniel became the Chief Executive Officer of Belmond in June 2013.
The critical access hospital CEOs highlighted on Becker’s list lead the hospitals featured on Becker's "62 Critical Access Hospitals to Know." All hospitals featured on the list have 25 or fewer inpatient beds and an annual average length of stay no more than 96 hours for acute care. These institutions also offer emergency care and are located at least 35 miles away from any other hospital.
To develop this list, the Becker's Healthcare editorial team examined the rankings and awards from organizations such as iVantage Health Analytics, Healthgrades, the National Rural Health Association, Truven Health Analytics, Women's Choice Award and Leapfrog Group. The team also considered the hospital's community impact and reputation for innovation. It’s important to note that this list is not an endorsement of the included hospitals, health systems or associated healthcare providers, and organizations cannot pay for inclusion on this list.
