Rural Hospital Leadership Team Award

Rural Hospital Team Award

The Rural Hospital Leadership Team Award from the AHA Section for Small or Rural Hospitals honors the leadership team who have guided their hospital and community through transformational change on the road to health care reform. The team will have displayed outstanding leadership and responsiveness to the community’s health needs and demonstrated a collaborative community process that has led to measurable outcomes.

The team will receive a stipend for 2019 of $1,500 to defray the team representative’s expenses to attend the AHA Rural Leadership Conference in Phoenix or the AHA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. The AHA will work with the honoree and finalists to provide national recognition of their achievements through media releases and announcements and feature stories in our national media channels.
