Rural Hospital Replacement Studies
Download Stroudwater’s annual Rural Hospital Replacement Studies, 2005-2011
How does replacing a Critical Access Hospital facility affect its operations, quality, and revenue? Stroudwater studied CAHs across the country to find out.
Rural communities that have built a new Critical Access Hospital have pioneered a new era. Find out how replacement facilities impacted their operations and bottom line.
Updated and improved, the 2006 study analyzes performance data to determine volume, efficiency, and profitability of replaced facilities. Interview findings are report peer experience.
The study's third year identifies measurable changes in the experience of Critical Access Hospitals engaged in the process of facility replacements.
The fourth special industry report of rural hospital facility replacements presents the successes, barriers, quantifiable measures and firsthand experience reported by rural communities that have undertaken a replacement project.
The 5th anniversary of the study has a simple yet compelling goal: understanding the benefits and pitfalls of facility investments from the communities that have direct experience.
COMMUNITY PROFILES Part One of the study examines the make-up of communities that have successfully completed a replacement facility.
IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD Part Two of the study analyzes the impact of replacement hospitals' volume, financial, and operational performance.
The 2011 Rural Hospital Replacement Study builds on seven years of data and research to provide CAHs with proven findings of how hospitals that have chosen this strategic direction have fared. This year's Study includes 114 CAHs and provides additional analysis on those facilities that experienced their first years of operation during this difficult economic period.
