Small rural hospitals can employ physicians under AB 2024
Sacramento – Today AB 2024 by Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Healdsburg) was signed by the Governor.
Recruiting physicians to practice in rural communities is a significant challenge. Only 16 of California’s 58 counties have enough primary care physicians. As a result, only one-third of Californians live in a community where they have adequate access to health care. Adequately staffing these hospitals is absolutely necessary for the health of its residents and the viability of the community.
