HOSPITALS FOR RURAL PEOPLE.
MANNY, ELSIE S.; ROGERS, CHARLES E.
MODERN ADVANCEMENTS IN MEDICAL SCIENCE HAVE PRECIPITATED THE NEED FOR ADEQUATE UP-TO-DATE HOSPITAL FACILITIES REASONABLY CLOSE TO ALL PEOPLE. RURAL COMMUNITIES HAVE UTILIZED FEDERAL AID, STATE AID, ASSISTANCE FROM FOUNDATIONS, CIVIC BONDS, AND VOLUNTEER CONTRIBUTIONS AND DRIVES TO ERECT AND EQUIP HOSPITALS. HOSPITAL CARE FOR RURAL PEOPLE USUALLY TAKES THE FORM OF GROUP INSURANCE THROUGH EMPLOYERS' OR FARMERS' ORGANIZATIONS. STEPS INDIVIDUALS CAN TAKE IF NEW HEALTH FACILITIES ARE NEEDED IN THEIR COMMUNITY INCLUDE--(1) INTEREST OTHERS, (2) DETERMINE NEEDS AND OBJECTIVES, (3) DEVELOP FINANCING PLANS, (4) ENLIST SUPPORT OF A SPONSORING GROUP, (5) GAIN HELP FROM PROFESSIONAL GROUPS, (6) INVESTIGATE HOSPITAL SERVICES PAYMENT PLANS, AND (7) DEVELOP EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS TO PROMOTE HEALTH GOALS. THIS BOOKLET IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR $0.15 FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402. (SF)
