In 2016 Hill Country Memorial was recognized as one of the nation’s top 20 rural community hospitals by the National Rural Health Association.

The 20 highest ranked rural community hospitals in the country were determined by data compiled by iVantage Health Analytics. Hospitals were evaluated on consumer value, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, financial stability, inpatient and outpatient market and population risk.

According to the American Hospital Association, there are 1,855 rural hospitals in the US that serve nearly 51 million people. Such hospitals provide access to routine and emergency care, produce jobs and most importantly, foster partnerships with their communities to ensure health and wellness.
