State Grant Awarded to Construct Health Care Center

A $3 million state grant has been awarded Primary Health Network to build a federally Qualified Health Center in Derry Township, Mifflin County, to better serve the health needs of area residents, according to Senator Jake Corman (R-34).

Corman said the grant is funded through the state Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), which provides funds for community and economic development projects throughout the state. It is expected to create 75 jobs.
The health center will coordinate services with specialists, organizations and social service agencies to health care consumers, and house regional offices.
“This funding is crucial to jobs, economic development and improved health care services,” Corman said. “I’m pleased that as a result of this grant, we will be better positioned to meet the needs of patients here in Lewistown and surrounding areas.”
