Rural healthcare infrastructure challenges

Aging infrastructure is a problem for many rural healthcare providers.

John Monson with farm credit cooperative Compeer Financial says facilities are lacking across the country.

“We have two people in a room, you have a sheet down the middle and that’s the privacy they have. Or they can’t fit into a bathroom. So the idea here is to update those facilities and help them have better living circumstances so they can live out their lives where they should.”

He tells Brownfield many of Compeer’s farmer clients end up in assisted living.
