Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program to Provide Funding for 127 Projects and Initiatives
Grants will Support Essential Health Care Services Throughout New York State
Governor Kathy Hochul today announced more than $658 million in state funding to support 127 projects that will protect and transform New York State's health care delivery system. Administered by the State Department of Health and the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program will help to improve patient care by supporting high-quality facilities serving the inpatient, primary care, mental health, substance use disorder and long-term care needs of communities throughout the state.
"New Yorkers deserve access to quality health care and a strong, stable, and equitable health care system," Governor Hochul said. "These grants will provide critical funding for improvements at hospitals and other facilities throughout our state to ensure they deliver the top rate care New Yorkers deserve."
The awards will help fund 127 projects throughout the state. View a list and description of the projects by region.
Acting State Health Commissioner James McDonald said, "These funds will enable our health care providers and facilities to further modernize and integrate health care services to ensure that New Yorkers receive access to the medical care they require now and for future generations. New York is a national leader in providing first-rate health care thanks to Governor Hochul's dedication to making sure our health care systems have the resources necessary to deliver the best care possible for all New Yorkers."
The Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program is aimed at supporting efforts to reduce health care costs and improve the health outcomes of New Yorkers by expanding access to inpatient, primary, preventative, and other ambulatory care services as part of regionally integrated health care delivery systems. These awards are also focused on projects which will help ensure the financial sustainability of safety net health care providers, and the preservation or expansion of essential health care services.
The funding announced today was awarded under the second phase of the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program III and the first phase of Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program IV. In total, New York State has awarded nearly $1.68 billion in total funding through the program.
The State will award an additional $1.15 billion through additional phases of Statewide IV. Additionally, Governor Hochul's FY 2024 Executive Budget includes $1 billion in additional funding to establish Statewide V.
