We work with you to improve and enhance rural health services and promote healthier individuals and communities in Wyoming.
WHRN has taken the lead in branding and marketing our beautiful state to all healthcare professionals. Our marketing efforts help to keep Wyoming on top-of-mind with physicians and other health professionals across the country. We attend national conferences to keep up with the latest trends in recruiting.
We keep a current list of physicians and other healthcare professionals who have shown an interest in moving to our area. We are constantly searching for physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners who want to live and work in Wyoming and are interested in rural healthcare.
We save you time and money by conducting initial screenings for you. For a reasonable fee, we can also perform background checks to ensure each candidate is a good fit for you and Wyoming.
We match the desires of potential candidates with your employment needs.
We build relationships with potential candidates with positive, helpful communication efforts. When a candidate is finally ready to make a move, they will call us first.
It costs seven times more to recruit a medical professional than it costs to retain them. We can show you how to keep your staff from leaving.
WHRN has set the standard for reporting. We use KontactIntelligence software to track vacancies, candidates and referrals and report our success to you.
We represent Wyoming with a strong presence at conventions and trade shows. And we encourage direct representation by you at these meetings. We would like to have you partner with us to promote your area.
WHRN serves as a clearinghouse for information on primary healthcare services in the rural/frontier communities of Wyoming. We can provide, or arrange for, technical assistance and consultation services to communities and rural areas to recruit healthcare professionals, assess healthcare needs and priorities, and identify sources of funding and programming.
Here is an important way to offer loan repayment to your physicians and other providers through NHSC (National Health Service Corps). As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, NHSC will be disbursing $200 million in loan repayment nationwide. In order for your providers to participate, your site must be approved by NHSC. You can get your application for approval at http://nhsc.bhpr.hrsa.gov as well as learn about federal requirements for your site and for providers. This is the same address at which you will find the individual application for providers once you have received approval for your site. To find out if you are in a HPSA (Health Professional Shortage Area), check out http://hpsafind.hrsa.gov/HPSASearch.aspx. Some sites might be shortage areas for just dentistry, primary care or mental health, so this may affect the type of providers who can receive loan repayment through this program.
Providers do not need to have trained through the NHSC program to qualify. Eligible professions include:
Primary Care Physicians (MD or DO in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, and psychiatry) Primary Care Nurse Practitioners, Primary Care Physician Assistants, Certified Nurse-Midwives, Dentists: General or Pediatric, Dental Hygienists, Behavioral and mental Health Providers (health service psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, psychiatric nurse specialists, marriage and family therapists and licensed professional counselors)
If you find that your site does not qualify, please feel free to pass this information on to others.
