Benninghoff Votes to Provide Significant Financial Support for Frontline Health Care Facilities, Workers
HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) Wednesday voted to support legislation that will provide $210 million to frontline health care facilities, behavioral health centers and critical access hospitals. In addition, $15 million will be dedicated to a successful student debt relief program for nurses.

In the 171st District, the Meadows Psychiatric Center will receive $521,306 from this funding package.

"For the last two years, our frontline health care facilities and personnel have given all they have to keep Pennsylvanians safe from COVID-19. Time and again, they have been asked to give more of themselves than they have ever felt possible," Benninghoff said.

"It is clear this funding package will do a lot of good by getting resources to those facilities fighting this pandemic on the front lines while providing resources to bolster staff at Pennsylvania's health care facilities, helping nurses deal with the burdens of student debt and getting help to those who have given their all to keep Pennsylvanians safe during the pandemic."
