I was proud to announce that I secured an additional $2.5 million in federal funding for Samaritan Medical Center in Watertown. I personally rewrote the formula used to allocate HHS funding to enable Samaritan to receive the funding after they were left out of earlier rounds of rural hospital funding because of a classification error. The North Country relies on its local hospitals to care for our families, and I’m glad that I have been able to help many of our community health centers receive the funding that they need to serve our region.
