Our most recent awards include:

Top 20 Rural and Community Hospital

The National Rural Health Association has named Alomere Health as one of the Top 20 Rural & Community Hospitals in the nation. Alomere Health is the first Minnesota hospital to ever garner this honor in the Top 20 Rural and Community Hospital category!

Top performers are recognized as excelling in managing risk, achieving higher quality, securing better outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction, and operating at a lower cost than their peers. These groups serve as a benchmark for other rural facilities as they strive to achieve similar results and provide a blueprint for successfully navigating the uncertainty of the new healthcare.

Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital

Alomere Health scored in the top 100 of rural and community hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX® yet again. The INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural provider performance and its results are the basis for many of rural healthcare’s most prominent awards, advocacy efforts and legislative initiatives.

This is the sixth year Alomere has won this award (2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2023, 2024), making us one of only 3 hospitals in Minnesota to achieve this status! There is no better illustration of the value that rural facilities provide to their communities than to be recognized as one of the top performing rural facilities in the nation. Earning a spot on the Top 100 list is based on performance across numerous metrics. It is the health care industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural provider performance.
