Socorro General Hospital Recognized For Quality

June 19, 2014

SOCORRO, N.M. – Socorro General Hospital (SGH) was recently named a Top 20 Best Practice for quality by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). An awards ceremony will be held during NRHA’s Critical Access Hospital Conference in October in Kansas City, Mo.

SGH is the only critical access hospital in New Mexico to receive this recognition. The NRHA names the top 20 best practices in quality, patient satisfaction and financial stability based on standard data that all hospitals must report to the public, which is then analyzed and measured by iVantage Health Analytics.

“We are proud to be the only critical access hospital in New Mexico to receive the National Rural Health Association’s Top 20 Best Practices recognition for quality,” said Veronica Pound, interim hospital administrator, Socorro General Hospital. “This achievement recognizes our commitment to providing the highest-quality care to our patients.”
