Tahoe Forest Hospital

Congratulations to Tahoe Forest Hospital for being chosen to appear in the July issue article in the Rural Route e-newsletter.  Tahoe was nominated for demonstrating excellence and innovation in the area of quality.   Only eight CAH hospitals have received this special nomination and will be recognized and profiled with an article in the Rural Route e-newsletters July 2013 edition.

This award  was established by The Center and the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) to recognize the excellent work in critical access hospitals (CAH) throughout the country.  The recognition promotes excellence in quality and innovation and honors the achievements and results of CAHs, and publicizes successful strategies.

“This year’s recipients embody both outstanding quality and meaningful innovation,” said Terry Hill, Executive Director of the National Rural Health Resource Center.  “They demonstrate that rural hospitals can lead the way in the rapidly changing health care industry.”
