Abstract

A major goal of the Rural Hospital Project (RHP) was to assist communities in defining an optimal scope of hospital and community health services. It was hypothesized that a rational basis for service planning would result in an expansion of locally provided health services, increased local hospital and physician market share, improved hospital workload performance, and higher levels of consumer satisfaction with community‐based services. However, given the recent decline in performance of many small rural hospitals in general and in RHP hospitals in particular, at a minimum, stabilization of these troubled facilities could be considered a successful outcome.
