The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recently awarded 73 grants totaling $48.9 million to a wide range of hospitals and health care facilities in 31 states to improve their ability to provide high-quality medical care. The health care facilities include children’s hospitals, university medical centers, a substance abuse clinic, an eye institute, county health departments and clinics, a senior center, and several cancer centers. The funds, made available under the HRSA-administered “Health Care and Other Facilities” program, will support a variety of projects, including the purchase of equipment for an open-heart surgery complex in Alaska, a bioenvironmental hazards research building expansion in Colorado, construction of a pediatric intensive care unit in Texas, and equipping a skilled nursing facility in New York. A complete list of the grant recipients is available at the HRSA Web site, www.newsroom.hrsa.gov/NewsBriefs/2002/facilitiesaug.htm.
