California Rural Health Association Closes Shop

ruraldoctorThe California State Rural Health Association, a unifying voice for the state’s disparate rural health care providers for almost two decades, has laid off staff and closed its Sacramento office. The 16-member board of directors hopes to keep the trade association alive and active, “but it’s becoming more difficult in this environment,” said Dave Jones, president of the volunteer board. The association’s Sacramento office has been the center of rural health advocacy in California for more than a dozen years. Its closure leaves a hole that will be hard to fill according to a recent report at California Healthline.
