The Critical Access Hospital Coalition is a consortium of innovative health care leaders representing critical access hospitals (CAHs) across the country. The member-driven coalition focuses solely on critical issues impacting CAHs. We work to help federal policymakers understand the unique needs of CAHs, with the goal of ensuring that high quality health care is sustained in rural areas for the patients CAHs serve.
We work with Members of Congress and CMS to ensure that they understand the challenges and opportunities of providing health care in rural areas. Advocating on behalf of CAHs and the patients and communities they serve, we strive to develop proactive solutions to sustain health care delivery in rural areas.
CAH Coalition members receive relevant, timely information on the legislative and regulatory changes impacting CAHs. We also strive to locate sources of additional funding for CAHs. We help facilitate communication with Members of Congress and regulatory agencies.
We communicate through conference calls and emails with the goal of providing actionable information tailored to busy CAH executives.
