Nearly 700 rural hospitals at risk of closing

SaveRural iconMore than 70 rural hospitals have closed since 2010, according to the University of North Carolina Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research. An NRHA-sponsored study shows 673 more rural hospitals are “vulnerable or at risk for closure.” With your help, NRHA’s bipartisan bill will create a unique payment designation to offer a path forward for struggling rural hospitals. Help protect vulnerable rural facilities by asking your representative to support the Save Rural Hospitals Act.
