Pennsylvania Critical Access
Hospitals (CAH) Directory
Since 1997, the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility Program in Pennsylvania has assisted the Critical Access Hospitals in the Commonwealth. The Pennsylvania Office of Rural Health (PORH) has led quality improvement, financial, and operational improvements, implemented population health efforts, and partnered with trauma/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) partners to bring effective and innovative programming that has strengthened the Critical Access Hospitals in Pennsylvania. As the health care landscape changes in Pennsylvania, the vision of PORH is to strive to maintain access to primary care services and improve the health of the rural population. The Critical Access Hospitals will play a major role in accomplishing this vision.
