BEACON – Friday, Congressman Pat Ryan announced that he has secured over $2M in federal funding to expand services at Sun River Health’s Beacon Health Center. Amidst extremist proposals to cut funding for health care facilities in the lead up to the debt ceiling resolution, Ryan also reiterated his demand that Community Health Centers be fully funded.
“Everyone in the Hudson Valley deserves affordable and accessible healthcare,” said Representative Pat Ryan. “This federal funding will help families across the region get the treatment they need at a cost they can afford. But we can’t stop there. Congress must fully fund Community Health Centers like Sun River Health across the country. The Federal government shouldn’t play political games with our families’ health and safety.”
“Sun River Health’s Beacon Health Center has been a critical resource for the Beacon community for over 20 years and we are so pleased to further expand our work to include urgent care services at this location,” said Sun River Health CEO Anne Kauffman Nolon, MPH. “This investment will help us further meet the needs of the Beacon community in our multiservice health center. And, we are looking forward to being a more visible part of the Main Street landscape!”
