Strategy HCO6.4: Target recruitment and training efforts on medical positions and specialties that are lacking in our region.

Strategy Description

Shortages of all health care professionals exist outside of Buncombe and Henderson Counties. Specific needs include psychiatrists (both adult and child), dentists, and primary care physicians. The region needs to attract a number of general and specialty service providers to meet the health care needs of residents. Health care employers should work with local economic developers to include information about the region’s quality of life in recruitment materials and identify appropriate incentives to attract doctors and other professionals.
