For whom does Rural Emergency Hospital status make sense? Interview with Christina Campos

Interview Overview
The new Rural Emergency Hospital designation makes some facilities in America’s more remote places eligible for increased federal funding that could serve as a lifeline. Yet early projections suggest most eligible hospitals won’t take the offer, and many won’t have the option in states that reject the federal designation. So, for which rural hospitals does the REH option work?

In this conversation, Guadalupe County Hospital Administrator Christina Campos discusses why GCH is moving to REH status and what factors were key in making that decision.
