Phoebe Worth Recognized for Performance Leadership in Rural Health


Sylvester, GA | December 1, 2023 – Phoebe Worth Medical Center is proud to announce it has been recognized with a 2023 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Quality and Patient Perspective. Compiled by the Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (i.e., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes and/or Patient Perspective.

“Quality healthcare is critical and always evolving. It is our top priority to continuously look for ways to ensure our community has access to personalized, high quality patient care,” said Kim Gilman, CEO, Phoebe Worth Medical Center. “This recognition is a testament to our commitment to exceptional care and superior service.”

The Performance Leadership Awards are based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. INDEX data is relied upon by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, hospital associations and state offices of rural health around the country to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.

“Wherever we go in rural America, we witness first-hand the commitment, determination, and compassion with which rural hospitals serve their communities. Rural healthcare truly is mission-driven,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Healthcare. “Let us recognize the efforts of this year’s Performance Leadership Award winners and all those driven to deliver high quality care throughout rural communities.”

Phoebe Worth Medical Center is designated as one of the state’s critical access hospitals.
