A message from Tiffany Miller, CEO:

Team Yoakum,

It is my honor to announce that we have been named Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals! This is an immense honor, and I am so incredibly proud of each of you. We were one of only three hospitals named in the state of Texas! This distinction is measured by performance in inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient experience, cost, charge, and finance.
I want to invite each of you to take a moment and realize how special it is for us to receive this honor. We work in a complex, challenging, and ever-changing industry where we get the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those whom we serve on a daily basis. It takes a very special individual to fit the unique mold of our compassionate culture where we care for those in need. I want to extend utmost gratitude to each of you for choosing how you show up each day because you are a positive difference maker in the lives of others. Please take pride in the work you do because without you, none of this would be possible!
