The nearest other place to Kemmerer is over an hour and a half drive away. There are plenty of small towns, especially out west, that only have one drug store. There are stretches of highway where there is only one gas station with many miles in between.
Plus, most doctors are private practices. What if the only doctor in a town refuses to see certain "types" of patients based on race, religion, sexuality, sex/gender, etc.? Afterall, private doctor, still running a business though.
