Resources FOR RURAL HEALTHCARE leaders

In keeping with our nonprofit mission, RHI is proud to unveil our first free tool for rural healthcare leaders. We call it the REH Conversion Calculator.


Medicare’s new Rural Emergency Hospital (REH) model offers a financial and regulatory lifeline to facilities that are struggling to keep the doors open. But even with more than $3 million in annual direct payments, REH status isn’t right for everyone.


How can you know if it's right for you? This powerful data analysis tool is designed to point you in the right direction.

Rural hospitals need robust data analysis to evaluate their likely success with REH model – an up-front investment that can get in the way of good decision-making.


The REH Conversion Calculator is designed to help you overcome the initial cost barrier. Developed by our partners at Ascendient, this free tool weights and analyzes 12 distinct, hospital-level datapoints focused on operations and finances.

These are real numbers from your hospital, not aggregates, benchmarks, or national averages.
