Pennsylvania Hospital Benefits from Expansion of Rural Residencies

Corry Memorial Hospital Association in northwest Pennsylvania was one of 15 recipients to share $11 million in Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) funding to establish new residency programs in rural communities. HHS Secretary Xavier Becerras said, “Training more doctors in our country’s rural areas is a proven strategy to recruit and retain doctors to serve rural communities. By funding new residency programs focused on OB-GYN training, we can help eliminate maternal care deserts, an important step in making pregnancy and childbirth safer.” Corry Memorial Hospital, which is associated with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM), will establish a new psychiatry residency program.
