Why Are Rural Hospitals Closing?

Why Are Rural Hospitals Closing?

For the first podcast of 2019 we did a little digging with three different articles that all revolve around the same topic, why are rural hospitals closing?

It seems that many people are getting concerned about this as more isolated older adults whose children have relocated to different parts of the state or country are losing their local hospitals.

This put communities of all ages in difficult positions of getting medical care that can be hundreds of miles away.  So what happens to these people when they are in this situation?
