            (Spencer)-- A local hospital is getting some special recognition. Spencer Hospital has been named one of the Top 100 Rural and Community Hospitals in the U.S. It's the third consecutive year Spencer Hospital has received the recognition from iVantage Health Analytics, Inc.

The recognition is based on a review of data for over 50 service and outcome variables across eight pillars of performance. The majority of the data comes from public sources and the federal government. It's centered around quality and outcomes, patient safety, patient satisfaction and costs and charges.

Spencer Hospital was one of three in Iowa to be recognized this year in the iVantage top 100 rural and community hospitals. The others are located in Fort Dodge and Burlington.
