Medical Center receives top honors

A recent study put the Ketchikan Medical Center among the top two percent of critical care facilities in the United States.

The iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index, which compiles hospital rankings in preparation for changes to the national healthcare system, has put Ketchikan’s facility near the top for two years in a row. John Morrow, a vice president with iVantage, says that rural hospitals play a quote “critical” role in providing care.

The study looked at 1,300 hospitals nationally. The medical center is one of two Alaskan hospitals to make the top 100.
