Outstanding Rural Health Organization 2007 - Presented by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA), this prestigious award recognizes organizations that improve access to health care for people living in rural areas. This award acknowledges MDI Hospital’s longstanding commitment to innovation and quality, and our comprehensive approach to improving access to health care. One of the more significant challenges to providing care in the MDI region is the geography. The MDI region includes islands and hamlets that are separated by large sections of Acadia National Park. Through collaboration and innovation, MDI Hospital continues to overcome these challenges and ensure health care access to our friends and neighbors.
