Critical Access Hospital Community Partner Award – Rush Memorial Hospital received a Community Partner Award for work with a specific community partner to better the health of its community. The hospital wanted to start a discussion about how to assist community members and their friends and families who were struggling with or otherwise having experiences related to suicide in the county. This led to the creation of a group, Suicide Prevention Across Rush County (SPARC) in 2018 that continues to grow as a visible and expanding member of the community. The goal was to increase the number of suicidal ideation hospital visits and decrease the number of suicide deaths, hopefully indicating that more people were talking to hospital providers and others about their challenges. Thanks to a wide range of programming brought about by this community partner in direct work with the hospital, the Critical Access Hospital Community Partner Award was presented to Rush Memorial Hospital and SPARC.
