AHA to Rep. Tom Reed Expressing Support for the Rural Hospital Support Act

March 12, 2021

Rural hospitals are essential access points for care, economic anchors for communities and the backbone of our nation’s rural public health infrastructure. These hospitals have maintained their commitment to ensuring local access to high-quality, affordable care during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, in spite of unprecedented financial and clinical challenges over the last year.

AHA expresses support for the Rural Hospital Support Act, which will help keep the doors open at rural hospitals and allow them to continue serving their local communities during this time of sustained financial pressure and historic changes in care delivery.
