Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik announced that Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital (CVPH) has been awarded a $250,000 grant through the HHS’ Rural Health Care Coordination Network Program. The purpose of the program is to support rural health consortiums/networks aiming to achieve the overall goals of improving access, delivery, and quality of care through the application of care coordination strategies in rural communities.

“Our rural health systems provide critical care and services to North Country residents, and they have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I am proud to announce this funding for Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital as they continue their important work of serving Plattsburgh area residents. I have continuously advocated for and delivered direct financial support to our hospitals and community health centers, and I will continue to work hard on their behalf.”
