As rural health leaders, you’ve been working diligently on communications regarding important issues such as social distancing, hand washing and overall messaging around practices to flatten the curve. An additional concern is taking all steps possible to not overburden our rural health facilities, while demonstrating leadership in our communities to promote a sense of vigilance, but also an environment of security and calmness.
In this spirit, NRHA through donated services of partner Legato Healthcare Marketing, is providing NRHA members free access to a communications toolkit — designed to allow customization and branding for your facility — with messaging focused on:
- Calling first to determine if someone should be seen
- Your rural hospital/clinic taking a leadership role to protect your community
These materials are based on CDC messaging and guidance from a national rural health taskforce. As messages are perpetually evolving, we welcome continued feedback and ideas.
