Critical Access Hospital

The Critical Access Hospital (CAH) designation is available to hospitals that meet certain federal and state criteria and is designed to provide an alternative model to allow small rural hospitals to remain viable. This allows for increased service and staffing flexibility and increased reimbursement from Medicare.

For more information, view the  Critical Access Hospital Manual (PDF), or contact the Texas Department of Rural Affairs at (512) 936-6729.
