MultiPlan's Rural Grant Program

A hospital's relationship with its community is an integral part of its ability to serve residents and improve their access to healthcare. Since 1995, MultiPlan's Rural Health Outreach Grant Program has awarded over $520,000 to help rural hospitals reach out with programs and services that address the healthcare needs of their communities.
