Antibiotic stewardship programs are needed in all health care facilities, regardless of size and location. Community hospitals that have fewer resources may have different priorities and require different strategies when defining antibiotic stewardship program components and implementing interventions. By following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Core Elements and using the strategies suggested in this article, readers should be able to design, develop, participate in, or improve antibiotic stewardship programs within community hospitals.
