DCMH receives national honor, Governor award for longevity

Hospital ranks #1 in nation for patient transfers

(GREENSBURG, Ind.) -- Decatur County Memorial Hospital is getting recognition for their ability to quickly transfer patients who need specialized care in emergencies.


The hospital has been ranked first in the nation for having the fastest median time to transfer a patient to another facility for acute coronary intervention.


The ranking was given by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) which is a federal agency that helps users find information about the quality of care at over 4,000 Medicare-certified hospitals across the nation.


This rating from CMS considers the time from when a patient enters Decatur County Memorial Hospital with a heart attack to the time, in minutes, in which a patient can be transferred to another hospital, if necessary.


“The dedication and hard work of DCMH team members allows for life-saving measures like this to be possible. DCMH’s impeccable efficiency, ability to think, move quickly, and involve several teams allows us to put our patients first in every situation," Interim Executive Director for Nursing, Katie Lykins said.


DCMH was also recognized by Governor Eric Holcomb last week for the longevity and commitment to their employees, patients and the community.


Hospital President/CEO Rex McKinney accepted the Century Business Award as the DCMH marked 100 years of service in 2022.


“I am proud of the DCMH team and honored to be able to work alongside them in serving the Decatur County community. This distinction is an incredible accomplishment for our organization. We look forward to the next 100 years!” said McKinney.
