Over the past 10 years, the rural hospital crisis has led to the closure of 120 facilities with 2019 yielding a record year of 18 closings. According to recent Guidehouse analysis, 25 percent of the 1,430 rural hospitals across the country are at high risk of closing unless finances improve. Rural community and critical access hospitals face different operational challenges than larger, urban counterparts. To successfully address these challenges, rural providers should implement personalized programs that engage and empower the patient as a consumer.
