Owensboro Health Regional Hospital has been named to Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2022. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

The America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2022 list highlights the nation’s top inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs). Facilities in the 25 states with the highest number of inpatient rehabilitation facilities – according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) – were part of this study. 

“The Regional Rehabilitation Center at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital strives to continuously raise the bar and improve the quality of life of those we serve,” said Jeremy Crowder, manager of rehabilitation. “This award is a recognition of the dedication and compassion of each of our team members. It’s an honor to lead a team committed to improving the quality of life for every patient every time.”

The rankings feature the top 255 centers nationwide. The evaluation process was comprised of five steps:

Recommendations from peers: Thousands of medical experts (physicians, therapists, medical doctors, administration & staff working in physical rehabilitation facilities) were invited to an online peer-to-peer survey.

Quality Score: Participants were also asked to rank the quality of care, quality of service, quality of follow-up care and accommodations & amenities.

KPI Data Scores: The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) publishes KPI data for physical rehabilitation centers. The KPI data includes 15 different measures.

The Model Systems and CARF Accreditations: Facilities with these accreditations received a bonus to their overall score.

Owensboro Health Regional Hospital is ecstatic to be recognized on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2022.

“It is a great honor to be recognized in the top 20% of rehabilitation programs in the nation. We are so proud of this team, which showcases compassion, care and competence by providing service to help our patients heal, get home, and manage chronic conditions,” said Beth Steele, Owensboro Health Regional Hospital Chief Operating Officer. “They contribute to our mission and our community every day.”
