HANNIBAL, Mo. — The American Hospital Association recently recognized the 2023 recipients of the Rural Hospital Leadership Awards at their annual conference in Orlando, Fla. Hannibal Regional Healthcare System was recognized as a top-four finalist.

This award recognizes small or rural hospital leaders and teams who guide their hospital and community through change and innovation. Awardees display outstanding leadership, responsiveness to their community’s health needs and a collaborative process that has led to measurable outcomes.

Hannibal Regional has partnered with many local organizations to establish programs and initiatives that benefit residents and patients, especially in the area of medical training and educational opportunities. Hannibal Regional was one of 15 national awardees to receive funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to strengthen the health workforce by establishing new residency programs in rural communities.

That funding allows Hannibal to create a sustainable graduate medical education program, which will benefit more than 150,000 residents in a 13-county area. Hannibal’s innovative workforce pipeline starting in the K-12 setting, moving into the community college level, university degree programs and most recently, the terminal degrees in internal medicine is a direct investment that will benefit the health care needs of rural Missouri for generations to come.
