Local Heath Care Centers Receive Grants
Three health-care centers in the region have received funds through a bill passed in Congress two weeks ago to deal with the coronavirus crisis. One Community Health in Hood River and The Dalles will receive $62,079, Asher Community Health Center in Fossil will receive $51,324, and Rinehart Medical Clinic will receive $51,350. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services made the awards. Health center recipients may use the funds to address screening and testing needs, acquire medical supplies and boost their telehealth capacity in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
