Our DEI Statement

Building a Culture Where Difference is Valued

Diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI), and anti-racism are central to our mission, our vision, our core values, and our guiding principles. We are committed to fully embracing DEI in all aspects of our work.

The work that The Center does for rural communities is pivotal to the health of rural Americans and plays a significant role in keeping small rural hospitals open.
