Rural Health Care - A Tectonic Shift

The 1,350 Critical Access Hospitals in the U.S., including 64 in Nebraska, are the cornerstone of health care in rural areas. But changing rural demographics, economic forces and technological change are combining to put severe financial stress on these institutions. What are the forces driving rural hospital closures and what will the rural health care landscape look like in the near future? This presentation explains the current crisis and presents some possible paths forward for rural health care.
