Delta Region Community Health Systems Development

A partnership program with Health Resources and Services Administration’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy.

DRCHSD enhances healthcare delivery by providing technical assistance to critical access hospitals, small rural hospitals, rural health clinics, and other healthcare organizations.

From 2017 to 2021, the program supported 43 organizations (37 hospitals, 5 Rural Health Clinics, and 1 Federally-Qualified Health Center) in 40 DRA communities across all eight DRA states. A total of 73,220 county jobs were supported due to hospital and clinic employee spending (2017-2021), which represents about 19% of all local jobs in these communities.
