NEW RELEASE: A Playbook for New Rural Healthcare Partnership Models of Investment

Just Released! Build Healthy Places Network is excited to announce the release of our latest publication “A Playbook for New Rural Healthcare Partnership Models of Investment”

Many rural communities across the country face challenges in meeting community needs around health, workforce development, financial stability, infrastructure, etc. However there are calls to change the narrative around areas existing outside of urban centers to recognize the unique assets embedded in these enduring rural communities. Recently the Biden Administration embarked on a 30-stop tour of rural areas across the country to promote the White House’s Rural Playbook, a guide for communities to access the $1.2 trillion in funding now available through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. But what are the implications and opportunities for rural healthcare organizations?

Build Healthy Places Network’s Playbook for New Rural Healthcare Partnership Models of Investments is an action-oriented guide designed for healthcare organizations who want to pursue partnerships with rural community and economic development and other sectors, to create the community conditions that support improved community health. After interviewing dozens of experts we share case studies highlighting core strategies used by healthcare entities as examples for future multi-sector rural partnerships to follow.
