Pinellas and Hillsborough Low-Cost Health Clinics To Receive Funding

As reported in the St. Petersburg Times on July 8, 2009, local health centers that provide low-cost care for patients will soon be receiving stimulus funds that will enable expansion of facilities and updates of computerized records systems. As announced by U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa, construction on six exam rooms at the Johnnie Ruth Clarke Health Center will begin late summer or early fall. In addition to the new rooms, the $1.1 million for Pinellas clinics will help improve computerized records systems. The $1.3 million in funding for the Tampa Family Health Centers will be used to help move the facility to a new, expanded location which will have 19 exam rooms, instead of the current 8.
