Center for Rural Health

What is our core mission?

Much of the state depends on small rural and critical access hospitals for healthcare and economic stability.  MHA’s Center for Rural Health provides guidance, resources, and advocacy for these hospitals across the state. Recognizing the challenges, from workforce to payment and access to capital, the Center seeks to understand the unique needs of our rural communities. 

In addition to informing MHA’s strategies and priorities, the Center makes available to its hospitals: 
  • Education and Communication
  • Advocacy and Policy
  • Resources and Grants
