Hospital Categories Critical access hospitals (CAHs)are located over 35 miles from any other hospital. They are state certified as being a necessary provider of health care to area residents. General hospitals deliver emergency care, execute general surgery, and admit patients for a range of problems from fractures to heart disease, based on licensing by the state.
