Two local healthcare facilities will receive a total of $11 million in state funding to improve patient care.

The funding was announced by Senator Joseph Griffo and Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi.

Rome Memorial Hospital was awarded nearly $8 million and the Eastern Star Home in Oriskany will receive almost $3 million.

  •  Rome Memorial Hospital will acquire an existing medical office complex to develop an outpatient medical village with primary care, substance abuse, and behavioral health services.
  •  Eastern Star Home will transform and restructure the facility by decertifying skilled nursing beds, and replacing them with assisted living beds, a memory care unit, and enriched housing beds.

The funding comes from the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program
