Rural Advocacy Agenda Archives

America’s rural hospitals are committed to serving their communities and ensuring local access to high-quality, affordable health care. The AHA is working to ensure federal policies and regulations are updated for 21st century innovation and care delivery, and new resources are invested in rural communities to protect access. Our rural advocacy agenda outlines key areas of focus. See previous issues below.
