The article reports on a health care program created by the U.S. Congress in the Balanced Budget Act of 1997. The Critical Access Hospital program is designed to support limited-service hospitals in rural areas. It was created to preserve vital emergency medical and safety net services in rural communities, while providing incentives for rural hospitals to develop locally integrated health care delivery systems. The application process includes a market study, financial feasibility study and a component unique to New Hampshire.
