Washington, DC – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $3,383,527 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for health centers across West Virginia.
“Our front line healthcare workers have worked tirelessly caring for their fellow West Virginians during the COVID-19 pandemic and our health centers play a vital role in providing West Virginians with quality healthcare during this crisis. As we continue to fight this pandemic and more West Virginians receive the vaccine, our health centers will be critical. I am pleased HHS is investing in our health centers and will continue to advocate for funding that supports our essential healthcare providers,” Senator Manchin said
“Health centers play such an important role in providing critical care to people across our state, particularly in the more rural areas of West Virginia. Our dedicated health care workers have been vital in our battle against the coronavirus and will be crucial as we work to bring the COVID-19 vaccine to all corners of our state. I will continue to use my role on the Senate Appropriations Committee to provide these resources to health care providers across West Virginia,” said Senator Capito.
