Medical Residencies and Increased Admissions in Rural Hospitals with Fewer Than 200 Beds.
Connor, Robert A.
Journal of Rural Health, v16 n3 p217-23 Sum 2000
A study of 1,792 rural hospitals with fewer than 200 beds found an increase of 100-200 admissions per resident--more for smaller hospitals and fewer for larger hospitals. Because increased admissions improve the financial health and continued operation of rural hospitals, this study confirms the importance of education-based strategies in ensuring access to care in rural communities.
