The Georgia Health Report: Federal aid for rural hospitals

This week on the Georgia Health Report, hosts River Gracey and Andy Miller discuss the federal program to aid rural hospitals in its first year:

It has been a year since this new federal program went into effect to help rural medical centers from closing their doors. How has this program done over the first year?

What are some of the obstacles that are preventing more hospitals from applying and receiving this aid?

Are any changes to this program currently in the works to attract more applicants?

Have rural hospitals always had this much struggle to stay open, or is this a more recent issue?
