Nominate your Country Doctor of the Year 2012
IRVING -- Do you know a great country doctor, the kind of physician who still makes house calls and accepts the occasional apple pie or roast turkey for a fee?
If so, he or she may qualify as the 2012 Country Doctor of the Year. Presented by Staff Care Inc., a national health temporary physician staffing firm and a company of AMN Healthcare, the Country Doctor of the Year award honors the spirit, skill, and dedication of America’s rural medical practitioners.
Past recipients of the award have been featured in numerous national media outlets, including USA Today, People, Parade, and “The Today Show.”
As part of the award, Staff Care will provide the 2012 Country Doctor of the Year with a temporary physician for two weeks at no charge, so the award recipient can take time away from his or her practice, a service valued at $10,000.
Nominations for the 2012 Country Doctor of the Year award will be accepted for physicians who practice in communities of 20,000 or less, and who are engaged in such primary care areas as general practice, family practice, internal medicine, and pediatrics. Anyone can nominate a physician, including hospital or medical group executives, co-workers, or family members, and all stories or anecdotes about the physician’s practice are welcomed.
Nomination forms can be downloaded from the Country Doctor of the Year award website at www.countrydoctoraward.com, or call 1-800-685-2272. Completed nominations must be received no later than Monday, Oct. 15.
