Rural Issues

Kansas rural hospitals provide essential health care services to a growing population of rural Medicare beneficiaries. Rural communities depend on hospitals to be there when they need them – to respond swiftly to emergencies, to help patients cope with acute and chronic illness and to care for those who have no place left to turn – 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
