BISMARCK, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has awarded $1,065,742 to the University of North Dakota (UND). This grant will support the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility program to strengthen Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) and rural emergency medical services (EMS), improving the delivery of quality care to patients in rural communities.
