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 Roger Wells, Physician Assistant at Howard County Medical Center.  Roger grew up in Central Nebraska on a farm raising hogs and cattle, and is proud to have been a farm kid. Growing up he attended school with a total of 17 people in his class.  He learned about what devotion is to his farm and family and got up in the morning with his dad to do the necessary farm chores.

“Leadership occurs when someone who has passion about an issue develops influence and impacts others to establish the coordination of efforts to accomplish a common goal.”

Roger went on to college earning degrees to become an athletic trainer, continuing his education to earn a master’s degree. After helping care for an automobile accident victim, he realized his passion for healthcare and went back to school to become a physician assistant.

Roger is active in with the National Advisory Commission on Rural Health and Human Services/Federal Office of Rural Public Policy, the National Rural Health Association, the Nebraska Governor’s Rural Health Advisory Commission, the President’s Advisory Council at the University of Nebraska and the Nebraska Rural Health Association.  

Awards he has received include:

  • Nebraska Rural Health Association – Achievement in Excellence Award-2013
  • University of Nebraska Medical Center – Physician Assistant Distinguished Alumnus Award-2014
  • University of Nebraska Medical Center – Allied Health Volunteer Faculty of the Year-2016
