Report: State doctor shortage appears likely


 Wisconsin could face a shortage of 2,200 doctors by 2030, most of them in primary care, according to a new report from the Wisconsin Hospital Association… Local health care providers say they've also been anticipating a shortage. It's an issue they take quite seriously."It's vitally important," said Dr. Robert Peck, director for Mayo Clinic Health System-Eau Claire. "You have to have enough physicians to take care of people in an area."
