Audubon County Memorial Hospital & Clinics Celebrates National Rural Health Day!

Rural communities are wonderful places to live and work — which is why over 60 million people call them home. Today we “Celebrate the Power of Rural” by honoring the selfless, committed, community-minded spirit of rural America. Rural communities also have unique healthcare needs and we know there is work to be done to enhance healthcare services in rural areas. However, we also believe there is plenty to celebrate!
