Pays a $10,000 incentive to eligible health professionals who complete three-year service commitments in communities up to 10,000 people

PIERRE, S.D. — Gov. Dennis Daugaard, R-S.D., issued the following news release: Health facilities in rural areas of South Dakota have gained a new tool to help recruit nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists and other health professionals, Gov. Dennis Daugaard said today.

The Rural Healthcare Facility Recruitment Assistance Program pays a $10,000 incentive to eligible health professionals who complete three-year service commitments in communities up to 10,000 people. The program is part of the Governor's South Dakota Workforce Initiative 2012 legislative package.

It replaces a previous healthcare professional recruitment assistance program, doubling the incentive payment and limiting participation to communities smaller than 10,000 people.

"Health professionals in South Dakota are concentrated in our most populous areas, and it can be a challenge for rural hospitals, clinics and other facilities to recruit them," Gov. Daugaard said. "I'm pleased to offer rural facilities this support to help recruit the medical professionals that are needed."
