Merkley, Wyden Announce $14.6 Million in Recovery Act Funding for Oregon Health Care Facilities

Washington D.C. – U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) announced today that the Department of Health and Human Services has awarded over $14.6 million in Capital Improvement Program grants to health centers across Oregon as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. 

The funding will be used to support the construction, repair and renovation of health facilities, to purchase new equipment or health information technology (HIT) systems, and to adopt and expand the use of electronic health records.

“Fixing the American health care system is a massive task and creating a 21st century health care infrastructure is a major part of the solution,” Merkley said.  “This Recovery Act funding will be creating jobs in Oregon while at the same time improving the facilities, information technology, and electronic records that allow our health care providers to focus on delivering quality care to patients.”

“More than 17 million Americans from small towns to urban centers rely on community health centers for basic health care,” Wyden said. “As we work to reform our current health care, we need to make sure that we take care of those elements of the current system that offer the services that people need most.  Keeping these centers healthy is crucial to keeping Americans healthy.”
