Jim Macrae, HRSA Associate Administrator Bureau of Primary Health Care

Congratulations to Jim Macrae for receiving the 2022 Presidential Rank Award - Distinguished Service, the highest recognition in the Senior Executive Service.

Jim has been the Associate Administrator for HRSA's Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) since 2006. He is an amazing leader whose contributions to HRSA's mission and the nation's health have changed the way health care is delivered, making it more equitable and accessible in communities that have been underserved for far too long. In 2021, nearly 1,400 HRSA-funded health centers with approximately 14,000 service sites provided high-quality primary health care to more than 30 million people.
