Critical Access Hospital Community Profiles

Amanda De Lucia News, Rural Hospital, State Office of Rural Health

The Office of Primary Care and Rural Health is proud to present the Critical Access Hospital Community Profiles Report. These profiles are an accumulation of health outcome data collected from the Utah IBIS network and Utah’s 99 Small Areas. The purpose of the report is to provide hospital administration an up-to-date view of the overall health of their service area population. The report contains the average value of 30 health indicators within a 30 mile radius of each Critical Access Hospital in the state. The data presented will provide hospital staff and administration a measurement of the general population health and community specific health outcomes. The results of this report can assist hospitals in identifying poor health outcomes in their communities and guide decisions about where to focus resources. 

This project was supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility Grant, grant number H54RH00050.
