ELKINS, WV – Davis Medical Center has been recognized, again, as a Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital. Compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, this annual recognition program honors outstanding performance among the nation’s rural hospitals based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX™.
“In spite of a very challenging last two years, the dedication of our staff to serve this community hasn’t wavered,” said Vance Jackson, President and CEO of Davis Health System. “This recognition affirms the work of our employees, and their commitment to higher standards of quality and excellent patient care.”
Davis Medical Center was among thousands of hospitals across the United States analyzed for the Top 100 designation. It was the only West Virginia hospital to earn the Top 100 title in the Rural and Community Hospital category.

Davis Medical has achieved Top 100 status several times in the past, and in 2018 earned the Top 20 designation.
“Continually earning the Top 100 designation is confirmation that our outstanding performance is by design, not by accident,” said Jackson. “The integrity of our people, at every level of the organization, has established a higher level of quality, compassion and professionalism. I am humbled to work beside such a great team.”
“Across the nation, top 100 rural providers continue to serve as a source of inspiration for hospital leadership teams and staff working diligently every day to improve the delivery of care within their local communities,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, the Chartis Center for Rural Health. “The list of award winners in each category is as geographically diverse as we’ve seen in some time, which is wonderful to see. We’re thrilled to be able to honor the outstanding efforts of these top performing rural hospitals.”
Now in its 13th year, the INDEX has established itself as the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Leveraging publicly available data, the INDEX is trusted by rural hospitals, health systems with rural affiliates, hospital associations and state offices of rural health across the country to measure and monitor performance across a variety of areas impacting hospital operations and finance.
