2018 Country Doctor of the Year Open for Nominations

Now in its 25th year, the Country Doctor of the Year Award has been presented to renowned rural physicians nationwide who have been profiled by USA Today, People, BBC, CNN, The Today Show, and many other media outlets. As part of the award, Staff Care will provide the Country Doctor of the Year with a temporary physician for two weeks at no charge, a service valued at $10,000.  According to Staff Care President Jeff Decker, rural doctors often cannot find physicians to cover their practices and so have difficulty taking vacations  This is a great way for healthcare facilities to reward a key staff member and to build their reputations for providing quality, accessible care.
