Opportunity Title:

Small Rural Hosptial Improvement Program (SHIP)


This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Small Rural Hospital Improvement Program (SHIP). This program supports eligible small rural hospitals in meeting value-based payment and care goals for their respective organizations through purchases of hardware, software, and training. SHIP also assists such hospitals in participating in delivery system reforms such as to become or join a Medicare Shared Savings Program or Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), participate in other shared saving programs, and purchase health information technology (hardware/software), equipment, and/or training to comply with quality improvement activities such as advancing patient care information, promoting interoperability, and payment bundling.


The State Office of Rural Health (SORH) in each state will be the official award recipient of record, and will act as fiscal intermediary for all eligible small rural hospitals within the state. Eligible hospitals within the territories that do not have access to a SORH must apply to the SHIP program individually. Eligible “small rural hospital” is defined as a non-federal, short-term general acute care hospital that: (i) is located in a rural area as defined in 42 U.S.C. 1395ww(d) and (ii) has 49 available beds or fewer, as reported on the hospital’s most recently filed Medicare Cost Report.
