(Denison, IA) – Crawford County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) is proud to recognize the innovation, quality of care, and dedication of health professionals and volunteers in our community during National Rural Health Day 2018. National Rural Health Day falls on the third Thursday in November each year and recognizes the efforts of those serving the health needs of over 60 million people across the nation.

“National Rural Healthcare Day is an important reminder to all of us,” said Bill Bruce, CCMH President and CEO. “It underscores how important it is to have access to local, quality healthcare that’s affordable.”

Bruce invites local citizens to participate in National Rural Health Day activities to celebrate the “Power of Rural.” CCMH will be participating in NRHD through social media including patient stories and employee videos.
