The National Rural Health Association and The Chartis Center for Rural Health are partnering on a new rural health safety net survey exploring staffing shortages at rural hospitals. Hospital input will provide a better understanding of how the staffing crisis is impacting the delivery of care in rural communities and inform future research.
The survey should take approximately five minutes to complete. Michigan’s small or rural hospital members are encouraged to complete this survey not only to inform national efforts, but also because Michigan-specific results will be shared with the MHA to support crafting rural workforce solutions. Members with questions should contact Lauren LaPine at the MHA.
