Closed hospital Closed hospital

No one really enjoys going or being admitted to the hospital. So, if you’re completely healthy and hate hospitals, then the trend we’re watching around the country is great news! For instance, let’s look at the great state of Kansas where, according to the National Rural Health Association, 48 rural hospitals have closed since 2010 and nearly 300 more hospitals face threats of being shut down. If you take a look at a broader lens, the NRHA believes almost 700 rural hospitals are “vulnerable or at risk for closure” in the very near future.
