New York State Invests $650 Million Toward Healthcare Access
The New York State Department of Health (DOH) and the Dormitory Authority of New York State will administer $658 million through 127 projects designed to "protect and transform" New York's healthcare delivery system, according to a press release from Governor Kathy Hochul's office.
The investments will help "improve patient care by supporting high-quality facilities serving the inpatient, primary care, mental health, substance use disorder, and long-term care needs of communities throughout the state," the release state.
