Giving Local Hospitals A Financial Boost

The Kentucky House has voted to create a loan program to provide struggling rural hospitals with cash transfusions lawmakers hope will spark a financial turnaround.Hospitals in counties with fewer than 50,000 people would be eligible for the loans. More than 60 hospitals qualify under that definition, and more than a dozen are considered “vulnerable to closure,” said Republican Rep. Danny Bentley, the bill’s lead sponsor.
