ALBANY – Catskill Regional Medical Center in Harris has been awarded $12.9 million from the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program.
The funding will be used to retire debt to grow services at the Sullivan County facility.
The grant will better position the hospital to preserve essential services, develop a telehealth network and expand behavioral health services.
“While the federal administration continues its years-long campaign to curb critical healthcare protections, we are doubling down on our commitment to ensuring New Yorkers have access to the high-quality and affordable care they need,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo. “These investments will continue to build a modern, sustainable and fully integrated health care infrastructure centered on improving the well-being of all New Yorkers.”
Other area healthcare facility grants under the state program include just under $12 million for Mount Vernon Neighborhood Health Center, Inc., $29 million for St. John’s Riverside Hospital and $4.6 million for the Mental Health Association of Westchester, Inc.
