Sunflower Rural Health Clinic wins major award

The Sunflower Rural Health Clinic in Ruleville has been named one of the top rural health clinics in the nation.

North Sunflower Medical Center’s Sunflower Rural Health Clinic received a Lilypad award, according to a release by NSMC this week.

The award designates the rural clinic as one of the top five provider based rural health clinics in the Southeast and one of the top 50 in the country.

The Lilypad award analyzes data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid programs to calculate the top performing rural health clinics in the nation, NSMC said.

Data is taken from the 4,400 rural health clinics across the country that are reviewed in the December 2019 Medicare Cost Report.

“We try every day to provide our patients with the best care anywhere,” NSMC said in a statement. “We are proud to have this recognition and will remain focused on our number one goal – excellent patient care.”
