Episode 33: The Health of Critical Access Communities

Today we are talking about critical access hospitals and how they impact the health of the communities they serve. We’ve discussed critical access hospitals before, but now we’re going to look at a recent study about the health outcomes of communities with critical access hospitals, particularly in comparison to rural communities without them. Our guest today is Dr. Tony Slonim, President & CEO of Renown Health in Reno, Nevada.
