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.

Here’s How it Works

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

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.

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.
