Welcome to RHQN
Created in 2002, The Rural Healthcare Quality Network (RHQN) consists of active rural health providers who are engaged in meaningful improvement in the quality of care delivered to patients in rural Washington. The Network was formed through a series of steps and funding sources, including funds for Critical Access Hospital quality improvement through the State Department of Health and a congressional appropriation.
