Sundance, Wy – A Crook County health care provider says that an 80-thousand dollar grant from the state will help to recruit a much-needed family practice physician. The money is part of a state funded effort to bring new doctors to areas where there are major shortages. The C-E-O of the Crook County Medical service is Doris Brown. She says several health clinics in Crook County were temporarily closed last summer because they did not have enough doctors to stay open. But Brown says the new state grant will help pay for recruiting services, advertising, and moving expenses.
