Quality and Clinical 2015

Congressional Action Kit

NRHA has developed three requests for members to ask their senators and representatives:

1)  Protect and strengthen all rural hospitals.

2)  Support robust funding levels for all rural health programs for fiscal year 2016.

3)  Join the Senate Rural Health Caucus or House Rural Health Care Coalition and sponsor key legislation.


Materials to review, share
