Charles LovellCharles Lovell, Jr., FACHE, chief executive officer of Caldwell Medical Center in Princeton, is participating in a walk to bring attention to rural hospitals that are under threat of closure. Last year, the mayor of a small North Carolina town walked to Washington, DC to highlight the struggles his town faced after the closure of its hospital. This year, representatives from across the country will join him on the 283-mile walk (one mile for each of the rural hospitals the organizers say are under threat of closure because of federal policy).

On the morning of June 15, the walkers will arrive at the Capitol, where they will hold a rally and speak with legislators.

On Friday, May 15, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) will host a forum on the role of Kentucky's rural hospitals in the State Innovation Model (SIM) health system transformation project that is underway in Kentucky. It will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (ET) at the Department of Public Health Conference Suites in Frankfort. The meeting will explore health system transformation models that have proven effective for smaller and rural hospitals in other states, and the potential relevance of the models to Kentucky.

To help navigate this complex and important conversation, CHFS is bringing in the global research, consulting and technology firm, The Advisory Board Company.

On December 16, 2014, CHFS received a $2 million SIM planning grant from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The SIM initiative is meant to support states’ efforts toward population health improvement and sustainable health system transformation...

There are several events scheduled to assist small and rural hospitals in the coming months.

On August 19, a kickoff meeting will be held for a new collaborative. KHA and the American Heart Association (AHA) have partnered to create a rural hospital-focused collaborative improvement project with the goal to improve heart failure care delivery and outcomes for rural Kentuckians. KHA and AHA recognize that rural hospitals care for populations with unique challenges related to overall health status, health care access, poverty and transportation. National data indicates that heart failure outcomes for rural hospitals lag behind outcomes when compared to those in urban areas. This collaborative improvement project will tailor resources to meet the unique challenges rural providers face and work to ensure rual Kentuckians receive evidence-based health care. The event will be held at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill in Harrodsburg. Details and information are available at http://www.kyha.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/HeartFailureCollaborative.pdf.

Kentucky Auditor Adam Edelen will host a series of public hearings across the commonwealth this summer to talk about the fiscal health of rural hospitals. The 10 hearings kick off a study by the Auditor’s office that seeks to understand the challenges facing small, community hospitals that provide health care to 45 percent of Kentuckians and are key economic drivers in those communities.

“Rural hospitals are teetering on the edge of survival in many Kentucky communities,” Auditor Edelen stated. “This is an effort to understand the degree to which our hospitals are in crisis and what might be done to save them.”

The Auditor’s office is currently soliciting the financial records of some 66 public, non-profit and for-profit hospitals in rural western and eastern Kentucky. A survey asking key questions about their fiscal health will then be conducted. The Auditor’s office plans to issue a report this fall.

Hospital administrators and staff, local elected officials, other health care providers...
