Florida: Miami-Dade Clinics to Get $6 Million for Expansion

May 2, 2012

The Obama administration announced Tuesday that community health centers in Miami-Dade County will receive more than $6 million through a provision in the Affordable Care Act. The funds are intended for renovation and construction projects; the goal is to enhance primary care for the poor and uninsured to reduce costly visits to hospital emergency departments. Florida health centers are receiving a total of $21.4 million to serve an additional 41,000 patients, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The Miami-Dade grantees are Borinquen Health Care ($4.3 million), Camillus Health Concern ($800,000), Community AIDS Resource ($500,000), and Community Health of South Florida ($500,000).
