PARTNER INITIATIVE:

Garnet Health/Sullivan 180 Loan Repayment Program

The Garnet Health/Sullivan 180 Loan Repayment Program will provide student loan reduction funds to GHVHS primary-care residents who either choose to rotate through the Catskill Regional Medical Center in Harris or who are nearing completion of their residency and transitioning to practice in Sullivan County. The number of residents assisted through the Loan Repayment Program will grow over time with one new resident selected each year.

“Coming together with Touro and GHVHS gives us the ability to assist future doctors throughout their medical education and provide the incentives they need to stay in our local community.”

Sandra Gerry, Founding Chair, Sullivan 180

“The combined efforts of Sullivan 180, Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Greater Hudson Valley Health System represent a tremendous opportunity for sustainable improvement of health in our community…”

Jonathan Schiller, CEO, Catskill Regional Medical Center
Financial incentives to medical students and resident physicians will expand Sullivan County’s access to primary care doctors. Read the Press Release…

According to the Center for Health Workforce Studies at the State University of New York, Albany, Sullivan County has the lowest rate of primary care physicians to population in New York State at 6.29 primary care providers per 10,000 individuals. Furthermore, Sullivan County is ranked 61st out of 62 New York counties in health outcomes. 

As a result of significant student debt, medical school graduates are drawn to higher-paying specialties and away from medically underserved areas such as Sullivan County. The financial incentives provided by this initiative will address the ongoing shortage of primary care doctors in Sullivan County and help improve the county’s health care ranking.
