THAF Launches Quality Improvement Program for Texas CAHs

Surviving health care reform is a significant challenge for critical access hospitals in Texas. Several CAHs nationwide have had to close their doors in recent years due to the changing health care environment, and the survival of these facilities will depend highly on their ability to improve quality outcomes. A new initiative from the Texas Hospital Association Foundation in partnership with the Texas A&M Health Science Center Rural and Community Health Institute and funded by the Texas Department of Agriculture’s State Office of Rural Health will help CAHs do just that.
