Senators Manchin and Capito announce $910,000 for Health Centers in WV

WASHINGTON (WDTV)-- U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) announced $910,000 from the Health Resources and Services Administration for 26 health centers throughout West Virginia.

According to a press release from Manchin's office, the funding will help improve operational and clinical practices by increasing access to technology, enhancing security of patient information and improving patient care quality.

“Access to healthcare is essential to the well-being of all West Virginians and Americans. By improving our health centers, patients will receive quality, accessible healthcare across our great state," said Manchin. "As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to fight for funding for West Virginia health centers so that West Virginians can live healthy, safe lives." 

“In rural states like West Virginia, community health centers remain a primary health care source for many,” said Senator Capito. “By investing in these clinics, we’re investing in the health of our communities and working toward a stronger West Virginia. I applaud HHS for recognizing the need for these resources across our state."
