WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), members of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $910,000 from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for 26 health centers throughout West Virginia. This funding will help improve operational and clinical practices by increasing access to technology, enhancing security of patient information and improving patient care quality. 

“In rural states like West Virginia, community health centers remain a primary health care source for many,” Senator Capito said. “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,” Senator Capito said. 

“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. 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,” Senator Manchin said.
