Hospitals in the region will be sharing $433.5 million as part of $1.457 billion in additional federal COVID-19 funding.
The new allocations come out of a pool of $50 billion controlled by the Department of Health and Human Services that has been set aside for hospitals nationwide to help pay for the costs of providing care for coronavirus patients while also helping the hospitals deal with their losses of regular revenue streams.
The announcement of the new funding came from U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer.
“Our hospitals and providers have been New York’s heroes in the fight against COVID-19, and these critical dollars will help keep the fight against the virus going strong,” Schumer said. “New York and its hospitals have been on the frontline of the battle against the virus for over a month now and they are struggling.”
