Three Captial Region health care agencies $6.8 million in state grants Tuesday, officials announced.
Ellis Hospital received $5 million for its project to convert the former St. Clare’s Hospital into a medical home. The medical home will provide primary care services in one setting to infants and adults.
The Center for Disability Services in Albany received $1.3 million to upgrade its Center Health Care facility. The facility provides a wide array of medical services for people with disabilities.
Hometown Health in Schenectady received $498,000 to strengthen women’s health care services in the community.
The state grants are designed to pay for projects to restructure primary care services in New York, state Department of Health officials said. The grants are funded through the Health Care Efficiency and Affordability Law for New Yorkers, passed in 2006.
HEAL NY authorizes the state to appropriate or bond up to $1 billion for projects that support the mandates of the Commission on Health Care Financing in the 21st Century, also know as the Berger Commission.
