What Happens When a Rural Hospital Shuts Down

According to the North Carolina Rural Health Research Program, 83 rural hospitals have closed since 2010. After a rural hospital shuts down, many factors are negatively impacted: access to healthcare, jobs and the local economy.

A hospital in rural Missouri is one of the most recent closures. Read first-hand perspectives of how people are impacted by the closed facility.

At TinkBird, we work with many healthcare facilities in rural areas to recruit physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners to help close the healthcare gap. There are often many opportunities for permanent and locum tenens positions that can be very lucrative for providers.
