(MISSOURINET) – Governor Mike Parson’s 50.5-billion-dollar state budget proposal includes 15-million to create hubs at up to six rural Missouri hospitals. The plan aims to address social determinants of health, such as the economic and social conditions that influence the differences in health status of a person or group. State Budget Director Dan Haug (hog) says the goal is to reduce hospitalizations and emergency room visits.

Which hospitals would be included in this effort is unknown at this time. The governor’s proposal would be for the next state budget year, which begins in July.
