NRHA Supports Relaunch of Bipartisan Rural Health Caucus
Last active a decade ago, the Congressional Rural Health Caucus is now in its recruiting phase. The relaunch is a partnership between Reps. Jill Tokuda (D-Hawaii) and Diana Harshbarger (R-Tenn.). NRHA CEO Alan Morgan says the caucus provides “an opportunity to shed light on critical issues facing many rural providers and patients.” According to a 2020 report from the Chartis Center for Rural Health, an NRHA member, 62 percent of rural hospitals don’t have intensive care unit beds.
