Rural Emergency Hospital (REH) Technical Assistance Center

The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy will offer funding for a single entity to provide technical assistance for rural hospitals. The program purpose is to ensure that rural hospitals and the communities they serve have the information and resources needed to make informed decisions as to whether the REH model of care is best for their communities, and if so, facilitate a successful implementation of REH requirements for those hospitals converting to this new provider type.

Program objectives include:

  • Assessing feasibility of the REH model
  • Assisting with the application to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for REH designation
  • Providing ongoing support to REHs implementing new services and achieving REH compliance standards

Eligible applicants are domestic public and nonprofit private entities, including tribes and tribal organizations.
