Nearly a quarter of rural hospitals are on the brink of closure

More than a fifth of the nation’s rural hospitals are near insolvency, according to a new report.

Twenty-one percent of rural hospitals are at high risk of closing, according to Navigant’s analysis of CMS data on 2,045 rural hospitals. That equates to 430 hospitals across 43 states that employ about 150,000 people and generate about $21.2 billion in total patient revenue a year.
