Inquirer.net reported that the APICHA Community Health Center received more than $6 million last month from Phase II of the New York State Department of Health’s Vital Access Provider/Safety Net Program. The New York City community center was one of 37 recipients of funds that the program awarded to hospitals, nursing homes, free-standing clinics, and home health establishments that have financial difficulties but are critical to delivering healthcare to New York’s communities. Throughout the next three years, APICHA will use its funding to enhance operations, including hiring primary care and mental health providers and additional staff. The center provides general and HIV-specialty primary care and support services to underserved communities, including the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community; Asians and Pacific Islanders; and other people of color.
