RMH named a Best Regional Hospital by U.S. News & World Report

RMH has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Regional Hospital.

In late January, the magazine listed 247 hospitals located in areas with populations less than 500,000 as Best Regional Hospitals. To be considered a Best Regional Hospital, the organization must rank in the top 25 percent of all hospitals in at least one of 16 categories. RMH ranked among the top 25 percent in two areas: pulmonary care and ears, nose and throat care.

The magazine reviewed more than 5,000 hospitals in the nation while compiling the list.

“U.S. News & World Report looked at thousands of hospitals and picked only a select few as Best Regional Hospitals based on their criteria,” said RMH President Jim Krauss. “This recognition validates our commitment to providing the best possible care for our patients and community.”

RMH is a part of the Sentara Healthcare system, headquartered in Norfolk, Va., that includes 10 not-for-profit community hospitals. Another Sentara hospital, Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, also was recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Regional Hospital.

In addition, Sentara Norfolk General and Sentara Virginia Beach General were listed No. 1 and No. 2 respectively in the metro hospital rankings (hospitals located in areas with populations greater than 500,000) in the Virginia Beach market.

RMH, located in Harrisonburg, Va., is a 238-bed community hospital that has provided health care services to the central Shenandoah Valley since 1912. Among its regional services are comprehensive cardiac care, including cardiothoracic surgery, cardiac intervention and electrophysiology; cancer care; general surgery; orthopedics and sports medicine; advanced imaging; pediatrics and obstetrics; general acute care; emergency medicine and women’s services.
