Rural Health Care
Rural hospitals provide essential health care services to some 57 million people. Because of their size, modest assets and financial reserves, and higher percentages of Medicare patients, small and rural hospitals disproportionately rely on government payments.
Please join us in reaching out to Congress on important legislation, learning more about key policy actions, and building public support for rural health care.. To join an AHA Advocacy Alliance on key issues go to www.aha.org/Alliances.
