Why do Rural Primary-Care Physicians Sell Their Practices?
Evaluated why rural primary care physicians sold their practices, based on a survey in five states that looked at changes of ownership during the period from 1995 to 1998. Examined the factors that led independent physicians to sell their practices to either non-local buyers, local hospitals, or local physicians.
