Rural Health Care

About Rural Health Care

Rural California spans approximately 94,000 square miles and is home to 5.5 million Californians. While that equates to only 6% of the state population, these remote areas provide a wealth of resources, including farmland, water, energy, recreational opportunities, and more for the entire state and beyond. California’s rural communities play a vital role tending to those resources and, in turn, they need services available to them. Rural hospitals are those health services, doing more with less and providing quality care with their own limited resources. California has 64 rural hospitals, with 36 further classified as critical access
