Focus Areas

Rural Health Sustainability

ARHP strengthens and supports the infrastructure and capacity of rural hospitals by leveraging resources, facilitating collaboration, and supporting healthcare leaders to navigate continuous policy changes at the state, regional, and federal level.

Professional Roundtables

Department-oriented meetings offer peer support for health-care professionals to facilitate communication and improve efficiencies, revenue, and cost savings.

Swing Bed Program

In partnership with Allevant Solutions (developed by Mayo Clinic and Select Medical), critical access hospital members are empowered to increase their swing bed volume and related revenue while enabling rural patients to heal close to home.

Member Job Board

The online member job board provides a central location for all ARHP member organizations to post vacant positions and recruit a local health workforce.

Clinically-Integrated Network

Acute care/PPS hospital members work together to create a more efficient and effective healthcare experience for the patient while also decreasing costs to healthcare systems.

Community Health Needs Assessment

Every three years, ARHP assists non-profit hospital members to complete IRS-required assessments, which highlights the most pressing local health concerns.

Hospital Board Retreats

ARHP recently started facilitating board retreats for member hospitals to increase understanding, improve collaboration with safety net providers, improve service delivery, and better support hospital leadership.
