June 18, 2010
GRANBY – St. Anthony Granby Medical Center was recently awarded $41,757 from a grant funded by the Colorado Rural Health Care Program that helps strengthen health care options in rural communities. Funds were awarded to 28 different health care organizations with gifts ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 to support physical, mental and oral health care providers in 24 counties.
The Colorado Rural Health Care Grant Program was established in August 2007 and is funded with $7.5 million from United Healthcare, a total being distributed over six years.
The grants support health information technology, construction and remodeling projects, equipment, and staff training. Funds will be used to support personnel, education and training, equipment, supplies and indirect costs associated with implementation and management over a two-year period.
Colorado Governor Bill Ritter is in support of this grant.
“As we continue toward our goal of providing access to high quality, affordable health care to all Coloradans, it is critical that we support our rural communities,” said Ritter. “These investments will have a significant impact on care and on people’s lives from Montrose to Kit Carson.”
St. Anthony Granby Medical Center has provided health care services to Grand County residents for more than 30 years.
