Health Overhaul Rural Health

Health Overhaul Rural Health

In this Thursday, March 9, 2017 photo, Dr. Kyle Parks sits in his office outside Evans Memorial Hospital in Claxton, Ga. Parks works as the lone general surgeon at the hospital, which has struggled financially in recent years like many other rural U.S. hospitals. But the hospital can’t and won’t turn away the uninsured, federal law prohibits it in emergencies. Recently, Parks performed an urgent gallbladder operation on an uninsured woman. “It is what we’ve always done, we take care of people, payer or no payer,” Parks said. (AP Photo/Russ Bynum)
