The annual statewide meeting is a chance for all Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Quality Network members to come
together in person and discuss pertinent issues regarding healthcare quality in North Dakota. It features
presentations from healthcare quality experts and updates on best practices. This meeting is a complement to the
Network’s quarterly and regional meetings. All CAHs are encouraged to send one or two attendees.
The Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) North Dakota Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) grant
program will support the cost of mileage to attend the meeting. Each CAH is eligible for mileage reimbursement
for one vehicle. Hotel costs will be reimbursed for those traveling more than two hours for the meeting. You
can request reimbursement for one night’s stay for one room per CAH. Payment will come from the hospital or
traveler up front, and reimbursement forms will be available at the meeting.
