Is Rural Emergency Hospital the Best Option for You?

The FORHP-funded Rural Emergency Hospital Technical Assistance Center (the Rural Health Redesign Center) provides a recording of the June 6 webinar.  Technical experts discuss a new federal designation, the Rural Emergency Hospital, a provider type designed to address concerns that some rural hospitals would not be able to sustain operations and could be at risk of closure. The Rural Health Redesign Center provides free financial, clinical and operational assessments to facilities considering the REH designation to inform their decision making.   The session includes two CEOs who consulted with the Center and decided to convert, and one CEO who went through the process and decided against converting.
