Read Time:2 Minute, 3 Second

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Joe Manchin
(D-W.Va.), both members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced
$4,000,000 to assist in expansion efforts for West Virginia Health Right. This
funding was made available through the U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS),
and is a Congressionally Directed Spending request made by both Senators Capito
and Manchin.

“Since coming to Congress, I have been a proud
supporter of West Virginia Health Right, and have fought for the resources they
need to operate efficiently and effectively as they serve West Virginians. With
their patient population doubling in the past seven years, it is essential that
they have the space needed to expand their physical footprint and accommodate
this tremendous growth. With this funding, the clinic will be able to be
expanded to a new three-story building adjacent to the current facility, and
renovate the existing clinic to best serve the needs of the Charleston
community,” Senator Capito said. “I was honored to attend the
ribbon-cutting ceremony when they opened operations at their
West Side clinic, and I look forward to
the impact this expansion project will make in West Virginia once complete.”


“West Virginia Health Right provides essential care to West
Virginians, regardless of their insurance or ability to pay. I proudly
secured this
funding to expand Health Right’s offerings and construct a new facility
that will help upgrade existing clinic space, renovate a new three-story
medical building and provide new equipment and furnishings,”
said Senator
Manchin.
 “As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will
continue advocating for resources, including earmarks, to support our
healthcare organizations as they care for West Virginians across the Mountain
State.”


In
total, Senator Capito
secured $241,135,000 and Senator Manchin secured more than $166 million in direct spending measures for
initiatives and projects across West Virginia through the
Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 appropriations
omnibus package.
