About the Event :

Americans in rural communities face a unique set of challenges when it comes to accessing health care. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, rural communities struggled with hospital closures, traveling long distances to receive care, and an older, sicker population. COVID-19’s surge over the past two years has disproportionately affected rural areas, including deepening workforce challenges faced by rural hospitals.

A new BPC report, The Impact of COVID-19 on the Rural Health Care Landscape, examines the ongoing financial and workforce-related challenges facing rural hospitals and lays out policy recommendations to strengthen rural care and guide health care systems as they exit the pandemic.

Please join BPC on Wednesday, June 29 from 1-2 p.m. ET for a discussion on new recommendations focused on stabilizing rural health systems.
