Robin Rau Recognized as a “Community Star”

Robin Rau, CEO, Hospital Authority of Miller County, Recognized as a “Community Star” in Conjunction with National Rural Health Day 2019

Robin Rau, CEO, Hospital Authority of Miller County, was recently selected from the many nominations as a Community Star by the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health [NOSORH].  Rau will appear in the 2019 edition of the Power of Rural, available at, the official hub for NRHD and the Power of Rural movement.

NOSORH, the member organization for the 50 State Offices of Rural Health (SORH), leads National Rural Health Day, an annual day of recognition each November, to shine a light on those who serve the vital health needs of the estimated 57 million people living in rural America. 

“Our entire team is thrilled that Ms. Rau is being recognized nationally for the dedicated work we see her do every day in Miller County,” said Jill Brown, CFO, Hospital Authority of Miller County.        “Her leadership, vision, and belief in our staff members are critical to our ability to consistently deliver quality care.”

SORHs, including Miller County Hospital, provide support to rural hospitals, clinics, and first responders in several ways including technical assistance, funding that supports workforce development, population health management, quality improvement initiatives, and more.

Beginning in 2015, NOSORH invited its members to nominate hospital and emergency first responder teams, community health, and volunteer service heroes on the front lines of rural health who were making a positive impact on rural lives.  In the last four years, the organization has recognized those individuals who go above and beyond to ensure quality healthcare is available in rural areas.

“I’m honored to receive this recognition,” said Rau, CEO, Hospital Authority of Miller County. “However, it is the experience, hard work, and dedication of all our staff members, managers, and leaders that make our organization extraordinary.”
