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 60th 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.
