Washington, DC – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, have announced $5,416,868 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to support nine West Virginia healthcare providers, including Pendleton Community Care. This funding from the Provider Relief Fund (PRF) was included in the CARES Act and other bipartisan COVID-19 pandemic relief packages, according to a press release from Manchin and Capito’s office.
Pendleton Community Care was awarded $236,074.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for West Virginia’s healthcare providers and workers to be prepared for any emergency that tests our state. Our healthcare professionals continue to go above and beyond to care for their fellow West Virginians, and I’m pleased these nine providers are receiving support to continue their critical work through the Provider Relief Fund,” said Manchin. “As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue advocating for funding to support our healthcare professionals as they care for West Virginians across the Mountain State.”
“We will forever be grateful for the brave and courageous service of our medical professionals in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. One way we can support them is by making sure that our hospitals and health centers have the resources needed to help cover lost revenue and increased expenses during the pandemic. I’m glad to announce funding that will help do just that, and I will continue to help deliver the resources they need to operate efficiently and effectively,” Capito said.
