NEW RICHMOND -- Westfields Hospital & Clinic has been recognized as a 2021 Top 100 Critical Access Hospital.

The program, compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, honors outstanding performance among the nation’s rural hospitals based on the results of the Hospital Strength INDEX.

Westfields has been identified as a top 20 and top 100 hospital numerous times in the history of the awards.

“I’m so proud of all our colleagues, who continue to provide our patients with this exceptional level of care every single day,” said Steve Massey, Westfields Hospital & Clinic president. “To be recognized as a top critical access hospital year after year speaks volumes about the consistently high experience and compassionate care our team gives to all our patients. We certainly don’t do this for the awards, but our community can take confidence that the care we offer is second to none when we receive this kind of recognition.”

This hospital is far from deserving of any recognition in my opinion based off of personal experience. I have been using the Star-Observer for jobs, places to live and to keep up on events since I moved to St. Croix County over 10 years ago. This is a great platform to find new ideas or to see what is going on in our community. It would just be distasteful to me if I did not share my opinion.
