Dedicated to improving the health of rural and underserved communities throughout the state
Since 1991, SCORH has worked with local, statewide and national partners to leverage opportunities for improving rural quality of life. As the only federally-designated statewide organization solely focused on the health needs of rural communities, SCORH strives to connect available assets with community need.
With 27% of the state’s population living in rural communities, improving quality healthcare and positive health outcomes is paramount. Through a family of programs and resources, SCORH offers training, education and technical assistance to rural providers, advocates and communities. Encouraging rural-friendly policy, robust asset allocation and pro-rural messaging are cornerstones of SCORH’s work
