This study was designed to assess the effects of various hospital and environmental characteristics on the involvement of rural hospitals in forming and governing consortia and adopting consortia programs. It focused on the 127 hospitals that are members of the nine rural consortia developed by grants from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation during 1989 under its Hospital-Based Rural Hospital Consortia Program. Hospital involvement in the formation and governance of the consortia was found to be far less than expected for these grass-roots organizations.
