The Rural Hospital Coalition formed in 2019 following the merger of the Rural Referral Center(RRC)/Sole Community Hospital (SCH) Coalition and the Medicare Dependent Hospital (MDH) Coalition. These two independent groups with similar missions joined forces to advocate for the specific interests of rural hospitals with these Medicare designations.
In 2019, the Coalition is 65 hospitals strong. More hospitals means more resources, diversity and strength. It also means enhanced geographic coverage, which enables us to connect with more Representatives and Senators through constituent relationships.
