Alexandria-based hospital also named as a Top 20 Rural and Community Hospital

Alomere Health has been recognized in Becker’s Hospital Review’s “Great Community Hospital’s” list, and has again been awarded the remarkable “5-Star rating” from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for overall hospital quality.

A 5-Star rating from CMS is awarded based on 46 publicly reported measures grouped into the following categories: Mortality, Safety of Care, Readmission, Patient Experience, and Time and Effective Care. 

“It is so incredibly exciting and affirming to see the recognition based on the dedication, passion, and hard work of everyone to living our values of excellence, compassion, accountability, hospitality and integrity as we strive to deliver superior quality care to our family, friends, neighbors, and communities we serve,” said Carl Vaagenes, CEO at Alomere Health.  

Additionally, Alomere Health was added to Becker’s Hospital Review as one of 153 Great Community Hospitals in the nation is another amazing distinction.  This accolade is based on several outside rankings and ratings from top national organizations on clinical excellence, compassionate care and economic impact on the communities they serve.  

Earlier this year, Alomere Health was recognized as the first and only hospital in Minnesota to ever be named to the “Top 20 Rural and Community Hospital” award which is a highly esteemed accolade that acknowledges hospitals demonstrating excellence in providing high-quality care and improving health outcomes within rural communities across the nation.

“All of these amazing accomplishments wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for the hard work and dedication of the entire Alomere team. I would like to thank everyone for what they’ve done and continue to do to make Alomere Health one of the best medical facilities in the nation,” said Vaagenes.
