Rural Healthcare in America

By: Kyle Worthy

Episode Three: Financial Viability

 

In this series on rural health in America, we’re diving into the issues that are threatening access to care in some of our most medically underserved communities.

 

Our third and final episode focuses on the financial viability of rural hospitals. We will hear from Alan Morgan of the National Rural Health Association, Brad Huerta, CEO of Lost Rivers, and Dr. Mark Holmes, a professor of health policy and management at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health.

 

These experts will help us understand the impact hospital closures are having on the health and wealth of America’s rural populations and what measures are being taken to protect the healthcare organizations we cannot afford to lose.
