G.E. donates to Whitney M. Young, and Hometown Health to improve & expand healthcare | Health
An infusion of cash and '”people power” is coming to a pair of local health care organizations.
It’s part of G.E.’s developing health program - a three year, $50 million project.
On Monday, the Capital Region became the 10th community to get some of that money.
$750,000 will be shared by two community health centers.
The goal is to improve health care for those who are under or uninsured.
Mark Little, Senior VP of G.E. Global Research said “We are doing that by partnering with community health centers in these communities. Those on the front lines of patient care to help them expand services and serve more people who don't have health care.”
$500,000 will go to Whitney M. Young, which has sites in Albany and Troy, and $250,000 to Hometown Health in Schenectady.
Together, they plan to hire seven health professionals to improve and expand care.
G.E. volunteers will provide operational support to help the health centers be more efficient.
