Rural Health and Primary Care

smiling children, holding hands and walking infront of a barn.The health of Vermonters depends upon access to basic health care — especially in the more rural areas of our state.

The Department of Health is committed to ensuring an adequate supply of health care professionals as a basic function of public health.

The Office of Rural Health and Primary Care works with and supports small rural hospitals, clinics and health care providers to improve access to primary care, dental and mental health care for all Vermonters, especially the uninsured, underserved and those living far from larger medical centers.
