IRHA Physician of Excellence Awards


In a tradition started more than 15 years ago by the National Rural Health Association, the Illinois Rural Health Association has been honoring physicians who exhibit a special commitment to rural healthcare.  Award presentation receptions are held every fall in each winner's community. 

“One of the biggest healthcare challenges across our nation is the shortage of physicians who practice in rural settings. IRHA feels it is important to recognize those who have accepted this calling and gone out of their way to make an impact,” explained Margaret Vaughn, IRHA Executive Director.
