DALLAS, TEXAS – The search is on once again for the national Country Doctor of the Year. Staff Care, the nation’s leading physician staffing firm and a company of AMN Healthcare, is looking for a great country doctor, the kind who still makes house calls and accepts the occasional apple pie or roast turkey for a fee.

      Now in its 26th year, the Country Doctor of the Year Award honors the spirit, skill and dedication of America’s rural medical practitioners.

      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. 

        “We hope the award winner enjoys some well-deserved rest” Decker said, “but our real intent is to honor an outstanding country doctor and to shine a light on the great work that rural physicians continue to do even as their numbers dwindle.”  Past recipients of the award have been featured in numerous national media outlets, including USA Today, People, Parade and The Today Show.

         Nominations for the Country Doctor of the Year Award will be accepted for physicians who practice in rural communities and who are engaged in such primary care areas as general practice, family practice, internal medicine, and pediatrics.   Anyone can nominate a physician, including friends, patients, co-workers or family members, and all stories or anecdotes about the physician’s practice are welcomed.

      Nomination forms can be completed electronically at  For more information visit the Country Doctor of the Year Award website at or you may call Staff Care for a nomination form at (800) 685-2272.   Completed nominations must be received no later than November 15, 2018.
