Pennsylvania’s rural hospitals not so healthy
The Patriot News, June 18, 2008
Although the overall financial health of Pennsylvania hospitals continues to improve, many small, rural hospitals are struggling. Overall, 42 hospitals, or 25% of the state's hospitals, lost money, according to a report by the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council. "This is troubling because most of these smallest hospitals are a vital resource for rural Pennsylvania communities," the report said.
