Carroll County Memorial Hospital Partners to Celebrate National Rural Health Day
Carrollton, Missouri (November 11, 2012) – Amazing things are happening in rural Missouri. Innovative, local citizens have historically been willing to step forward and take risks to provide a wealth of products and resources for the rest of the country. The creative energy of those brave citizens have fueled the success of our small towns, farm lands, and rural areas. They continue to be places where you know your neighbors, take pride in your community and work together for the greater good.
Despite successful collaboration, these communities face unique healthcare concerns in today’s shrinking economy. The increasing lack of healthcare providers; accessibility issues, particularly in terms of transportation and technology; and affordability issues as the result of larger percentages of un-/underinsured citizens and greater out-of-pocket health costs plaque rural America leaving them without many healthcare options. Meanwhile, rural hospitals and health systems are gearing up to find new solutions to meet the physical, social and economic needs of their communities.
These are just a few of the issues Carroll County Memorial Hospital, and other local, state and national rural stakeholders hope to bring to light during the second annual National Rural Health Day on Thursday, November 15, 2012.
National Rural Health Day was created as a way to showcase rural Missouri and increase awareness of rural health-related issues. National Rural Health Day gives Missouri the opportunity to ‘Celebrate the Power of Rural’ and showcase the good works of Missouri’s rural citizens. It also allows us to highlight the unique healthcare issues faced by Missouri’s rural citizens and promote efforts to address these rural health care issues and concerns.
Carroll County Memorial Hospital supports rural citizens through programs such as geriatric psychiatry program, Senior Life Solutions. CCMH prides itself on their continuing commitment to the economic growth and stability in Carroll County. Providing ongoing programs that enhance the health of its citizens is a core value of the organization.

CCMH continues to partner with nationally recognized specialists to bring clinics to our area so citizens don’t have to travel.

CCMH is an active participant in our community and values input. Programs brought to this area have been a direct result of patient need. CCMH continues to grow in volume, specialty programs, and outlying clinics they offer. “Celebrate the Power” of your local rural hospital!
