Critical Access Designation
Skyline Hospital has a Critical Access Hospital designation from the State of Washington. The Critical Access Hospital program relieves the financial burden placed upon small rural hospitals. Critical Access Hospitals are allowed more flexibility with federal rules and regulations and are eligible for higher level of reimbursement from the Medicare and Medicaid programs without increasing out-of-pocket costs for patients.
To qualify for the Critical Access Hospital designation, a hospital must meet several criteria:
•Be located in a rural area
•Limited to 25 inpatients per day
•Patients tend to stay relatively short
periods of time in the hospital
•Hospital has a family-practice orientation
