Rural hospitals are community strongholds, serving as the key point of care for nearly 20% of Americans. Beyond providing healing and hope, rural hospitals nationwide are pillars of their local economies, creating essential jobs that support families and community vitality.

For this podcast, we honor our hospital heroes and focus on a year in the life of King’s Daughters Medical Center, Brookhaven, Mississippi from the perspective of KDMC's CEO, Alvin Hoover.
