Rural Health Leadership Radio™

Over the last ten years, over 100 rural hospitals have closed their doors. Roughly one in three rural hospitals have been identified as “at risk.” If there was ever a need for strong leadership, that time is now. RHLR’s mission is to provide a forum to have conversations with rural health leaders to discuss and share ideas about what is working, what is not working, lessons learned, success stories, strategies, things to avoid and anything else you want to talk and hear about. RHLR provides a voice for rural health. The only investment is your time, and our goal is to make sure you receive a huge return on your investment.

Marc Augsburger is the President and CEO of Caro Community Hospital in Caro, MI, part of the “thumb” area of Michigan.  Marc was born and raised in rural NW Ohio.  He graduated from nursing school in 1988 with Associate’s Degree in nursing and went on to earn his BSN and MBA with an emphasis in healthcare.  Marc primarily worked in critical care and emergency nursing prior to moving into hospital administration.

“…making rounds as often as possible to get to know your staff better really puts you in a better position to gain the support of your staff.”

Marc believes that one of the best ways a leader can engage employees is by simply getting to know them.

“…for every employee's child ten and under for their birthday. I actually send them a birthday card and stick a $2 bill in it.”

Previously, Marc was the CEO at Horn Memorial Hospital in Ida Grove, IA.  He assumed the CEO role at Caro Community Hospital in April 2013. 

Marc has been married to Melissa since 1999 and they have two daughters, Greta and Molly.
