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.

This week’s guest is Dr. Tim Putnam, CEO of Margaret Mary Health.  Tim began his career in healthcare in 1983 working in clinical laser and minimally invasive surgery research.  For the last fifteen years he has worked exclusively in rural healthcare leadership and is currently CEO of Margaret Mary Health, a Critical Access Hospital in Batesville, Indiana.   

Tim currently chairs the National Rural Health Association’s Policy Congress:

“The Rural Health Congress… (is about) making sure we get everybody’s voice heard and presented in a way that people understand… the more good people we have on Policy Congress, the more robust the policy positions are and the better we can tell our story.”

Tim also chairs the National Rural Accountable Care Consortium and the Indiana Board of Graduate Medical Education. Additionally, he serves on several other regional and national healthcare boards.

In 2015, he was certified as an Emergency Medical Technician and serves in that capacity with Batesville Fire and EMS.

Tim has degrees from Vincennes University, Oakland City University, University of Southern Indiana and received his Doctorate in Health Administration from the Medical University of South Carolina.
