Congratulations to LRHC’s CNO, Nicole Thorell, who was selected for the National Rural Health Association’s (NRHA) Rural Health Fellows (RHF) Program of 2018. This is a year-long in-depth program that allow rural leaders to work and develop evident visions for rural America. Thorell said in a recent article, “The NRHA fellowship will provide me an opportunity to strengthen my knowledge in regards to policy and how to appropriately advocate to our governmental officials. It is extremely important to continue to advocate for rural care because it provides many benefits to the people served,” Thorell said. “Access to healthcare is an issue for our country, and we need to ensure that future policy does not inhibit the ability for rural organizations to continue to provide high quality, cost-effective care close to home.”

Thank a Nurse Week

· In the News ·

We’d like to thank the nurses for all that they do! Certainly, that gratitude extends further to those fine nurses who support our physicians each day. Nurses truly do play a vital role and deserve to be recognized for their devotion and commitment. A nurse’s job is most definitely a tough one, and one must have a certain level of patience and empathy to perform that type of work. Thank you to all Nurses. We appreciate you!
