Saratoga, NYCongresswoman Stefanik has announced an estimated $63 million in HHS rural hospital funding from the CARES Act has gone to North Country rural hospitals. Recipients of the $63 million rural distribution include rural acute care general hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), Rural Health Clinics (RHCs), and Community Health Centers located in rural areas.

“This round of funding for our North Country rural hospitals is desperately needed during this financially challenging time,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I worked hard to ensure funding was included in the CARES Act for rural hospitals in underserved regions, and I will continue to work with the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure each North Country hospital is provided with adequate funding to make up for the loss of revenues experienced as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.”
