Glens Falls, NYCongresswoman Elise Stefanik successfully secured $21 million from the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services for Glens Falls Hospital. The hospital applied for this funding from the Medicare Advance Payment over a month ago. Their application was put on pause, and Congresswoman Stefanik’s office was able to work directly to resume their application process. Congresswoman Stefanik led calls with HHS Deputy Secretary Hargan and district hospitals and extensively advocated for the unique challenges faced by Glens Falls Hospital. Congresswoman Stefanik raised this issue directly with President Trump and the White House Chief of Staff over the weekend at Camp David and worked hard to deliver this significant result. Glens Falls Hospital will be receiving this $21M payment in five days.


“I raised the importance of financial support for Glens Falls Hospital with President Trump and the White House Chief of Staff,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “In addition, I worked directly with HHS and Glens Falls Hospital to resolve the issue and ensure their funding of $21 million will be delivered in under a week. I will continue to work directly with hospitals, health departments, and struggling families to deliver much-need relief and results for my constituents.”
