For Immediate Release:
Clark Regional Medical Center Recognized by The Chartis Center for Rural Health
as a 2019 Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital
June 13th, 2019 – Clark Regional Medical Center in Winchester, KY today announced it has been named one of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health. Regarded as one of the industry’s most significant designations of performance excellence, the annual Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals award is based upon the results of the Hospital Strength INDEX® from iVantage Health Analytics.
“At Clark Regional, we share LifePoint Health’s commitment to Making Communities Healthier, and we recognize this is supported by the quality care being provided to our patients by our employees and providers,” said Aphreikah DuHaney-West, CEO of Clark Regional. “Our top priority is to provide world class healthcare close to home, and we are honored to be recognized as a Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital.”
Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility scored in the top 100 among all rural and community hospitals nationally. Now in its ninth year, the INDEX leverages 50 rural-relevant indicators across eight pillars of hospital strength (i.e. Inpatient Market Share, Outpatient Market Share, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspective and Financial Stability) to determine an overall score for each hospital. Each of the INDEX’s 50 indicators is culled from publicly-available data sources.
“In an era of increased complexity and uncertainty, Top 100 hospitals have established themselves as a bellwether for rural provider performance,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Top 100 status is a real indicator of how proactive these hospitals are when it comes to pushing for performance improvement in areas such as quality, outcomes, patient safety, market share and finance.”

For more than 30 years, Tradio has been a listener favorite, airing 6 days a week and helping folks in the region to buy sell swap and give away items of all kinds. On Monday, we'll be airing a special Celebrity Tradio featuring Laid Back Country Picker.
Tune in from 10AM to 12PM and Listen Live HERE.
As many of our loyal listeners know, we've already enjoyed having local celebrity and WSKV Alumni, Chelsea Nolan in the DJ seat hosting Tradio the last several weeks. She graciously agreed to come fill in and help the station in Ethan's absence as he was helping care for his father and station owner, AC after he suffered serious medical issues. In addition to bringing her love of the region to the tradition of Tradio, she has also been delivering her powerful music to festivals and venues all over the state and beyond.

When Chelsea suggested that we have David Prince aka Laid Back to host Tradio with her, we were beyond thrilled with the idea. After all, Laid Back Country Picker is no stranger to making deals as seen in Laid Back Makes a Deal and Laid Back Makes a Deal 2. Laid Back along with his lovely wife Honey, have been playing good country music for folks all over the region and he was recently the subject of the documentary film "Chico".
His larger than life persona added to Chelsea's infectious fun spirit should make for an entertaining Tradio episode for sure!

Both Laid Back and Chelsea are playing this weekend at The Festival of the Red and will be giving away a pair of passes as we approach the noon hour.
SO get yourself familiar with the Tradio rules and plan to listen, call in or text.
