The Tennessee Hospital Association (THA) has issued a report saying that the impact of rural hospitals is almost $1 billion to the economy of state.
The association’s Rural Impact Report appreciates the state’s 61 rural hospitals with giving almost 16,000 jobs.
THA president and CEO Craig Becker claimed that hospitals in rural areas are mostly major economic engines in their communities and frequently the mere options for individuals who need health care.
The report states that hospitals in rural areas provided more than $292 million in uncompensated care in the year of 2015.
Becker, in his press statement, said hospitals in rural areas often treat older individuals who are likely to suffer from a number of chronic health conditions.
He claimed that hospitals in the outlying areas confront a host of challenges and are constantly under danger of having to close their doors.
