RiverView Health is Proud to Serve the Area on Rural Health Day, Everyday

Community news | Thursday, November 17, 2022

It’s National Rural Health Day (Nov. 17), and RverView Health is proud to serve this great rural area! There’s something special about caring for your neighbors, working together to benefit the greater good of the community, and watching families grow and thrive.

Over 61 million people – nearly one in five Americans – call a rural area home. National Rural Health Day is an opportunity to “Celebrate the Power of Rural” by honoring the selfless, community-minded, and determined spirit that prevails in rural America.

This year’s theme is “Driving Change – Going the Extra Mile’’. There’s no doubt, RiverView providers go the extra mile by delivering exceptional care to keep our community healthy, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our RiverView providers have the four Rs:

  • Resiliency: You will find a unique endurance quality in those who choose rural health as their career path.
  • Resolve: Although resources are often constrained, rural health professionals are masterfully skilled in securing solutions.
  • Relationships: Behind the story of rural health heroes are extraordinary people collaborating to improve rural life.
  • Readiness: The work of those committed to rural vitality is never-ending. The challenges they encounter are met with determination.

For these reasons and more, we recognize those whose work and contributions positively impact the vast and varied healthcare needs of people and families living, working, and raising their families in rural America.

National Rural Health Day is more than just a day - it’s a movement!
