Governor Andrew Cuomo is announcing $187 million in funding to support 25 statewide projects that will support essential health care services in New York State.

Rome Memorial Hospital will receive just over $3 million for capital improvements to expand program and rehabilitation services and the senior behavioral unit at the hospital's nursing home.

The Charles Sitrin Health Care Center in New Hartford will get $3.2 million to modernize the facility and upgrade technology, including a new Electronic Health Record system.

The funding comes from the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program.

"While the federal administration continues its years-long campaign to curb critical healthcare protections, we are doubling down on our commitment to ensuring New Yorkers have access to the high-quality and affordable care they need," Cuomo said. "These investments will continue to build a modern, sustainable and fully integrated health care infrastructure centered on improving the well-being of all New Yorkers."

Senate Deputy Minority Leader Joseph Griffo and Assemblyman Brian Miller issued the following statement on the Sitrin Health Care funding:

“The Charles T. Sitrin Health Care Center is a leading provider of health, wellness and rehabilitation services in the Mohawk Valley and beyond. The funding provided through the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program will help to modernize the Sitrin facility and its technology while enhancing the center’s ability to meet the needs of the individuals that it serves.”
