HPSA Designation
Harnett Health’s service area is designated as a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA).  This designation means that the community was able to prove to the state and federal governments that there is an ongoing shortage of primary care providers available to the community.  The benefit of being an organization with a HPSA designation includes government loan forgiveness for doctors, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who are working in these areas. The goal is to attract more primary care providers to these medically underserved locations. Additional benefits to the physicians and extenders include higher reimbursement rates for government insurances and building improvement grants to eligible clinics. For the hospitals, it helps recruit and retain physicians and extenders to these areas as well as potentially take the next steps in rural health clinics and other health programs.
