State awards over $24 million to Mid-Hudson healthcare facilities

ALBANY – A total of $24.4 million has been awarded to 10 healthcare providers in the Mid-Hudson Valley as part of the state’s efforts to protect and transform the health care system.

The largest allocation, $6 million, is for Dominican Sisters Family Health Service to retire debt associated with home care consolidation so the agency can expand its care transitions and telehealth programs.

A total of $5 million has been awarded to Newburgh-based Cornerstone Family Healthcare to renovate its Benton Avenue, Middletown facility to increase efficiency and improve care quality.

Cornerstone President Linda Muller noted they have reached a milestone since taking over the former Middletown Family Health Center.

“We have completed a year of service in that community and our practice is starting to rebound,” Muller said. “We have been able to hire some new providers of care – physicians, nurse practitioners – so everything is moving according to plan and we are really grateful to the state and grateful to be able t provide this high level of service right in the City of Middletown.”

The Ferncliff Nursing Home was awarded just under $5 million, Hudson Valley Mental Health was awarded $2.7 million, and the Center for Discovery was awarded $2 million.

Other grants include $1 million for Access: Supports for Living, $775,000 for Refuah Health Center, just under $817,000 for ARC Health Resources of Rockland, and $140,000 for Family Services of Westchester.
