SHIP is coordinated through the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy. SHIP funds states to support rural hospitals with 49 or fewer beds (including Critical Access Hospitals). These funds go toward operational improvements, including hardware, software and training. In Iowa, SHIP hospitals may choose to utilize consortiums to participate in SHIP investment activities. Consortium participation encourages collaboration to meet hospital goals in selected categories for the SHIP program.
