Hospitals in Oklahoma Vulnerable to Losing 'Critical Access' Status by U.S. Congressional District

As a follow-up to our blog post from last week, the OSU Center for Rural Health obtained information from the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) that identifies the rural hospitals in Oklahoma that could lose their ‘critical access’ designation (see map below). The Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provided the information to representatives of NOSORH through a Freedom of Information Act request. View our earlier blog post to learn why these hospitals could lose their 'critical access' designation.
