Federal coronavirus relief funds will go to Pennyroyal Healthcare Service that serves Lyon, Caldwell and other western Kentucky counties.
With a clinic in Princeton, the Hopkinsville-based health care provider will receive $567,275 through the $2.2 trillion CARES Act. The money is part of $21.7 million sent to Kentucky to address COVID-19 health care needs.
“The health care heroes in Kentucky’s community health centers deserve our support as they work on the frontlines of the coronavirus crisis. For many Kentuckians, particularly those in rural communities, these health centers provide vital access to quality, primary care,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.
The 25 clinics receiving funds serve patients in underserved areas of the Commonwealth. They treat all patients regardless of income, and are Kentucky’s safety-net for health care.
