What are some of the financial challenges rural hospitals face? What are some creative solutions? We’re talking about that and more this week in our conversation with Julie Leonard, CFO of Boundary Community Hospital.
“That program was the greatest program I would say I have been in and would recommend it to anybody.”
Julie Leonard is the CFO of Boundary Community Hospital (BCH) in Bonners Ferry ID. BCH is a 20-bed critical access hospital with an attached 28-bed long-term care facility. Julie has earned 2 master’s degrees – 1st in International Business and Finance and the 2nd in Health Care Administration and is a graduate of the first NRHA Rural Hospital CEO Certification program February 2020 cohort.
Julie and her husband are avid hikers and mountain bikers so living in rural Idaho gives us everything we want and need to live life as we love it. Being able to live and work in rural Idaho is even better!
