Redfield’s Critical Access Hospital

Monday, August 05, 2019

Redfield area residents have The Community Memorial Hospital and Redfield Clinic was named as a Critical Access Hospital (CAH) in 2000. The federal designation is meant to improve and maintain access to healthcare in rural communities. 

CAHs typically serve older, sicker and poorer patients than their urban counterparts. They also have a harder time recruiting physicians, which makes them financially vulnerable. As a CAH, the Community Memorial Hospital receives certain financial benefits to help keep its doors open. 

There are about 1,300 CAHs in the U.S. They are held to certain standards and receive information and technical assistance to improve healthcare outcomes and ensure financial stability. Learn more about the Community Memorial Hospital.
