FAH Celebrates Rural Hospital Week 2022

The Federation of American Hospitals is celebrating National Rural Hospital Week November 14 through 18 to highlight the unique and essential role hospitals play in small communities across the United States.

Rural Hospitals are Protecting Access to Care in Your Community

Equipped with advanced technology and expert staff, rural hospitals overcome constant challenges to deliver care close to home to an estimated 60 million people. These are the real stories of the impact these facilities, and the caregivers who work there, have on the patients they serve.

Chip speaks with the National Rural Health Association’s Brock Slabach

Caused by a long list of factors – from an increasing workforce crisis to dire funding shortfalls – access to critically important health care services, especially hospital services, in rural America is an ever-growing problem.

Chip speaks with the National Rural Health Association’s Brock Slabach, who spent a large part of his career as a small hospital administrator, about how Congress can provide a lifeline to providers in small communities and protect access to care for millions of Americans.
