Abstract: Data for 540 rural hospitals from 1982 to 1997 were analyzed to determine whether adoption of long-term-care (LTC) strategies improved hospital financial performance. Adoption of external and internal LTC strategies (other than swing-beds) was generally, but not unambiguously, associated with higher profits, increased occupancy, and/or lower costs.
