Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – February 23rd, 2020

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – More than 118 rural hospitals have shut their doors in the past ten years, leaving huge gaps in care for communities in need. In Tennessee alone, we’ve lost eleven rural hospitals and I’m concerned more closures may be on the horizon. 

At the National Rural Health Association’s annual conference, I discussed my bipartisan Rural Health Agenda, which will expand rural health clinics and rural health departments, attract doctors and other health care professionals to rural areas, and jumpstart the use of telemedicine.
