Some rural hospitals deemed "critical access hospitals," like Providence Hood River Memorial, are required to limit the number of patients they treat per-day to 25. Oregon Congressman Greg Walden says the patient limit can be a problem when demand for care increases, during a flu outbreak, for example.
