It is made possible by our integrated system of care which allows us to deliver Mayo Clinic expertise close to home.”
Becker’s selected critical access hospitals for inclusion based on rankings and awards from respected organizations, including iVantage Health Analytics, Healthgrades, the National Rural Health Association, Truven Health Analytics, Women’s Choice Award and the Leapfrog Group.
