Importance of the Network

Critical Access Hospital networks enhance the financial and quality of care for member hospitals through efficient resource pooling and collaborative clinical and staffing practices. Networked hospitals:

  • Provide support in meeting the basic requirements and regulations of CMS
  • Develop forums for data collection, and the development of benchmarks and best practices
  • Potentially share clinical and support staff resources to ensure access to needed care in rural areas
