Dr. Andrea Sandoval knew she wanted to practice medicine in a small Kansas community. But upon finishing her residency in 2010, she wasn’t sure which community would be the best fit.
That’s when Sandoval contacted the Kansas Recruitment and Retention Center, a KU Medical Center program that matches health care professionals with rural Kansas health care organizations. She shared her professional and personal interests with KRRC staff, who suggested she consider a position at Hays Medical Center. Sandoval visited Hays and soon became the town’s newest family physician.
