  • Rural Nursing Home Closures - Trends, Characteristics, and Impact on Access
    This project will build a database of nursing home closures across rural and urban areas in the U.S. and evaluate the changes in access to post-acute and/or long-term care providers. We will also describe the differences in organizational, financial, and market characteristics between open vs. closed nursing homes in rural vs. urban areas.
