Why Choose Great Plains Health Alliance

As a rural or Critical Access Hospital or clinic, it’s a challenge to get access to experts and resources like the big urban hospitals do. That’s why Great Plains Health Alliance, a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization of leased, managed and affiliated hospitals, was formed. GPHA offers services, personnel, expertise, resource-sharing and opportunities to hospitals that need it most.

GPHA helps rural or Critical Access Hospitals and clinics in Kansas and Nebraska to:

Here’s How it Works

GPHA offers a variety of relationships to accommodate the unique needs of each hospital and community:

Leased
GPHA assumes responsibility for the total operation of the hospital. The GPHA Board of Directors sets hospital policy. A local board serves in an advisory capacity and acts as a liaison among the hospital, community and GPHA.

Managed
The local board continues to set policy and GPHA provides administrative services. GPHA is accountable to and works with the local board.

Affiliated/Resources Sharing
Hospitals have access to one or more services offered by GPHA without being leased or managed. Services are available on an “unbundled” basis as needed.
