Superior, Nebraska – On the third Thursday of November every year, the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) leads National Rural Health Day, an annual day of celebration that shines a light on those serving the vital health needs of an estimated 57 million people living in rural America. NOSORH is the member association serving all 50 State Offices of Rural Health (SORH).
SORHs provide support to rural hospitals, clinics, and other rural stakeholders in several ways, including technical assistance, funding that supports workforce development, population health management, quality improvement initiatives, and more.
In 2015, NOSORH put out a nationwide call to nominate individuals, organizations and coalitions making a positive impact in rural communities. Soon after the stories started coming, the book of National Rural Health Day Community Stars was created. This year, nominations came in from 48 states, a record for this annual inspiring recognition program.
Brodstone Memorial Hospital will appear in the 2020 edition of the book of Community Stars, published on the official NHRD website, powerofrural.org, the morning of November 19, 2020. “We are excited and proud to be selected as the Community Star for Nebraska. We are passionate about rural healthcare and providing the best healthcare possible to all residents in our region. This award means a great deal to our staff and resonates the great impact they have on not only our patients, but also the communities we serve.” –Treg Vyzourek, Brodstone Memorial Hospital CEO
