About Us

Nevada Rural Hospital Partners is an alliance of 13 small and rural hospitals founded on the idea that we are stronger standing together than individually.

Building on a long history of cooperation dating from the mid-1970’s, Nevada’s small, rural and frontier hospitals realized they are much stronger standing together than as isolated, unaffiliated entities. In 1987, with temporary funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Hospital Based Rural Healthcare Program, the group established a formal consortium intended to focus on solutions to the issues and challenges facing rural hospitals.

Nevada’s rural hospitals are stronger individually, and as a group, because of the efforts of NRHP. The foresight and commitment of individual hospital administrators, their boards, and hospital staff, as well as the dedication of NRHP staff, have resulted in a consortium that truly makes a positive difference.


NRHP has four entities through which it carries out its mission and purpose:
