Rural health hospitals important part of small communities

January 10, 2013

According to the American Hospital Association, rural hospitals provide essential health care services to nearly 54 million people throughout the United States. Throughout the Upper Peninsula, rural health care plays a significant role in the health and vitality of small communities. Although the role and structure of rural hospitals has changed over the past few years, they continue to expand and diversify to provide a broader and more appropriate mix of services to meet the needs of surrounding communities. Much of this is made possible through networking among rural hospitals, and affiliations with larger hospitals, physician groups or other health care providers.
