- Lady of the Sea General Hospital was recently named one of the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in the country in Best Practice - Patient Satisfaction.
The Top 20 CAHs, including Lady of the Sea, scored best among CAHs as determined by the Chartis Center for Rural Health. The rankings were recently announced by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). An awards ceremony was held during NRHA’s Critical Access Hospital Conference in September 2021 in Kansas City, Mo.
The Top 20 CAHs have achieved success in overall performance based on a composite rating from eight indices of strength: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge, and financial efficiency. This group was selected from the Chartis Center for Rural Health’s 2021 Top 100 CAH list, which was released earlier in 2021.
The Top 20 CAH Best Practice recipients have achieved success in one of two key areas of performance:
Quality index: A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank across rural-relevant process of care measures.
Patient perspective index: A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank across all 10 HCAHPS domains.
Lady of the Sea received the Top 20 CAHs award from the National Rural Health Association in 2016, 2020 and 2021.
Lady of the Sea Medical Clinics (LOSMC) received the Louisiana Rural Health Association's Outstanding Rural Health Organization of the Year for 2021.

LOSMC won this award from Press Ganey 4 years in a row so far (2018, 2019, 2020, 2021).
