“U.C. Davis established its Rural Centers of Excellence program to help advance the delivery of health care for patients in rural areas and to create pathways that will encourage more physicians to practice in rural communities,” said David Lubarsky, CEO of U.C. Davis Health and vice chancellor for Human Health Sciences at U.C. Davis. “Our program creates collaborative partnerships with community providers like Plumas District Hospital, with the goal of improving clinical care access for patients in rural areas and reducing health disparities.”
