Abraham announces $5 million for area medical centers
WASHINGTON - Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D., R-Alto, announced Thursday that three medical centers in the Fifth Congressional District will benefit from nearly $5.1 million in combined grants awarded by the Department of Health and Human Services.
Morehouse Community Medical Centers, Inc., in Bastrop has received $1,025,840.
Primary Health Services Center in Monroe has received $2,318,475.
Winn Community Health Center in Winnfield has received $1,713,013.
The grants will help the medical centers provide health services to patients who use their facilities.
“Our rural medical centers provide a vital service to our communities. People who live in rural areas need to know they can rely on access to quality medical care near their homes. I’m glad to see these federal dollars returning home to Louisiana so that they can directly benefit the people who rely on these centers for their health care,” Dr. Abraham said.
