LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Kansas’ only academic hospital is working with a hospital in the western part of the state to improve rural health care.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/2c9W0rz ) reports that leaders of the University of Kansas Hospital and Hays Medical Center signed a letter Wednesday formalizing the working partnership. The two hospitals have been talking for years about ways to collaborate. They already are working together in various ways.

One effort involves the University of Kansas Hospital linking up with Hays and 14 critical access hospitals to provide virtual or telemedical care tied to heart disease and strokes.

Both hospitals will maintain their current leadership. But a new operations council, made up of members from both organizations, will be formed and tasked with directing the partnership.
