Geographic Variation in Risk of Financial Distress among Rural Hospitals
Discusses the geographic variation in the number of rural hospitals predicted to be at high risk for closure in 2015 as assigned by the Financial Distress Index (FDI) model. The FDI model uses existing hospital financial performance, government reimbursement, and organizational and market characteristics to determine risk levels associated with financial distress.
