As the COVID-19 crisis continues to sweep the nation, rural hospitals are preparing to serve the unique needs of their communities. This webinar will feature speakers discussing their experiences thus far on providing health care in their rural communities during the COVID-19 crisis.

Speakers from two rural hospitals will share their real-time learnings and promising practices as they deliver care to COVID-19 patients. The speakers will also reflect on the steps they took to prepare leading up to the surge they experienced and continue to experience. This knowledge-sharing will help other rural hospitals plan for anticipated challenges and operational considerations.

This session will feature their experience and insights, and provide an opportunity for you to ask questions.
