About KRHW

The Kentucky Rural Health Works Program (KRHW) was created to help rural communities and health administrators better understand the role health care plays in a local economy.  In 1998, Kentucky, Missouri, Nevada, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania initiated a five state pilot project that would expand public awareness of the economic importance of health care sector in rural communities. Kentucky Rural Health Works Program (KRHW) originated from Operation Rural Health Works Project (RHW). The RHW Project was originally sponsored by the Rural Policy Research Institute, the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Cooperative Extension Service.
