Session Description
The National Center for Rural Health Works will present the results from a research study to illustrate the economic impact of a typical rural nursing home. The session will include the research methodology and the final results. Each participant will receive a copy. The research is currently being conducted and the results are not available until the end of August.

The National Center has determined that the economic impacts of “typical rural health services,” (i.e., critical access hospitals, rural primary care physician, rural general surgeon) are useful to local, regional, and/or national policy makers. Policy makers can utilize the data resulting from this research to estimate the impact of adding or expanding nursing homes in rural areas. The economic impact of a typical nursing home, specifically, will include several scenarios based on nursing home beds and nursing home staffing levels.

The economic impact of a “typical” rural nursing home is not designed to replace the need for the actual, specific impact of a particular rural nursing home. The economic impact of a specific nursing home or a group of specific nursing homes can be determined, utilizing the data and multipliers specific to the rural community. This methodology is also available from the National Center.
