Rural Health Landscape

The focus of HCECM and its hospital members is on serving the unique needs of east central Michigan and its large rural environment. Being rural is beneficial in many aspects, but it also poses many challenges for hospitals and the communities they serve. HCECM hospital members collected and created the research papers, helpful links and information in this section to provide a "Rural Health Landscape" view to foster understanding.
