Block Island Health Services Recognized as Rhode Island’s “Community Star” on National Rural Health Day!


Block Island, RI – Block Island Health Services has been named Rhode Island’s 2022 Community Star, the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) recently announced.


On the third Thursday of November, NOSORH leads National Rural Health Day (NRHD), an annual celebration that honors those serving the vital health needs of nearly 61 million rural Americans. In conjunction with NRHD, NOSORH made a nationwide call for nominations, seeking individuals, organizations, and coalitions making a positive impact in rural communities.


Block Island Health Services will be featured in the 2022 edition of the Community Star eBook, which will be available on the official NRHD website,, on November 17, 2022. The eBook will showcase the stories of Community Stars from 48 states, exemplifying this year’s NRHD theme of “Driving Change and Going the Extra Mile.”


We are honored to be recognized by the state of Rhode Island for our commitment to our rural community and for the care we work so hard to provide to islanders and visitors. We would like to thank the NOSORH for this special award.
