In 2007, Liberty Medical Center began operating as a 25-bed Critical Access Hospi­tal (CAH). Critical Access Hospi­tals provide essential services to a community and are reimbursed by Medicare on a “reasonable cost basis” for services provided to Medicare patients.

The CAH program was designed to improve rural health care ac­cess and reduce hospital clo­sures. The reimbursement that CAH receives is intended to im­prove their financial performance and thereby reduce hospital clo­sures.


Liberty Medical Center is certified for 25 extended care beds or “Swing Beds.” Patients may be transferred from a hospital bed to a swing bed for a period of continued care based upon medical need.
