Shape the future of rural health: 2024 provider compensation survey

In 2023, NRHA partnered with Stroudwater Associates and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health to conduct the first-ever rural provider compensation survey. More than 6,000 rural providers lent their voices to create a comprehensive picture of the compensation landscape in rural health care.

Now, we're seeking your involvement in 2024.

Key insights from the 2023 survey include:
  • Alignment of provider compensation: The results highlighted that many rural health care organizations faced challenges in aligning their provider compensation with their organizational goals.
  • Variable salary trends: A significant finding was the increasing variability in salaries across rural health care.
  • Addressing shortages: Surprisingly, the survey revealed that salary increases were not necessarily linked to position shortages.
  • Professional service agreements: The survey uncovered that some independent and affiliated rural hospitals lacked clarity on what they were paying providers under professional service agreements.
Looking towards the future, the 2024 Physician and Advanced Practice Provider Compensation Survey aims to build upon these insights and drive even more significant change in rural health care. Your participation in the 2024 survey is a crucial step in this journey.

By sharing your experiences and knowledge, you'll contribute to a better understanding of rural health care compensation practices and help shape solutions that benefit providers, organizations, and the communities they serve. Your input will empower rural health care organizations to make informed decisions about compensation and additional benefits, ensuring fair practices and attracting top talent.

Together, we can create a brighter future for rural health care. Join us in this important mission by participating in the 2024 Physician and Advanced Practice Provider Compensation Survey.
