This motion passed unanimously. "Today's action will proactively improve health outcomes for those living in the rural areas in my District, particularly vulnerable seniors who are home bound and don't have access to transportation. The data shows us that rural residents have concerning rates of readmissions to the hospital after being discharged; so this program will support geographic equity by ensuring an equal distribution and delivery of health services throughout the County to those who need it," shared Anderson.
