SIBO is a very common disorder where there are excessive bacteria present in the small intestine. The true prevalence of SIBO in the general population is largely unknown, with some studies estimating its occurrence in up to 15% of healthy individuals. It is also largely associated with many other common clinical conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome, where 40-80% of IBS patients have SIBO.

Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare, a leading rural healthcare organization, has been rated among the top 10 hospitals in Missouri in a national hospital ranking index by the Lown Institute, a nonpartisan think tank based in Brookline, Mass.

The index, which was released in early July, assessed nearly 3,300 hospitals nationwide and rolls up scores from three categories, seven sub-components, and 42 detailed metrics to provide a unique and holistic ranking of hospital performance.

The hospitals on the Lown ranking received high value of care grades based on low use of unnecessary services. The quality of care metrics evaluated patient safety and health outcomes. Hospitals also earned marks in civic leadership by showing a commitment to diversity, inclusion, and community health.

These three pillars, along with data from the Internal Revenue Service, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the Securities and Exchange Commission, culminated in the ranking of hospitals. Overall, GVMH received an “A” for its ratings in these areas.

“We are extremely proud to have received an A ranking in the Lown Institute Hospitals Index and to be included as one of the top 10 hospitals in the entire state,” said Craig Thompson, CEO at GVMH. “Our communities rely on us in times of need and trust us with their lives, so it is important for us to deliver high-quality care. This index confirms the commitment and dedication of our staff.”
