Delta Rural Hospital Performance Improvement Project (RHPI)

The Delta Rural Hospital Performance Improvement (RHPI) Project is a part of the federal government's initiative for rural health and was first implemented in 2001 to assist hospitals in the Delta Region to:

  • Improve financial, quality and operational performance through comprehensive performance improvement activities, assessments and/or consultations
  • Help build state and regional capacity by providing ongoing assistance to rural hospitals throughout the Delta Region
  • Collect and disseminate information and resources that focus on improving performance.

The Delta RHPI Project activities are contracted to the National Rural Health Resource Center of Duluth, Minnesota, and focus on strengthening rural hospitals as the cornerstone to preserving health care access. RHPI is a source of technical expertise and business tools to help hospitals in the Delta Region achieve performance improvement goals.

Eligible hospitals are those with fewer than 200 beds and are located in the Delta Regions of Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. The National Rural Health Resource Center works in coordination with the State Offices of Rural Health, the State Hospital Associations, and Quality Improvement Organizations to coordinate activities. In addition to size and location, there are other selection criteria for individual TA. See the Selection Criteria >
