Colorado rural hospitals struggling to keep up

DENVER — Colorado’s rural hospitals are trying to maintain emergency services with fewer resources.

State officials say rural communities rely more on Medicare payments, which are being cut by the federal budget sequestration.

According to the Denver Post, some hospitals are coming up with their own solutions. Residents of the western Colorado town of Dinosaur are hoping to get emergency services from a town in Utah and the former Conejos County Hospital in La Jara and San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center in Alamosa merged to include two hospitals and five clinics.
