Nearly $100 million was awarded to help transform the Hudson Valley’s health care system.

On Tuesday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo gave $94.5 million to support 10 projects that will protect and transform the Mid-Hudson Region's health care system.

"Now, more than ever, we need to protect health care in New York and ensure the system in place is meeting the needs of current and future generations of New Yorkers,"Cuomo said. "While others seek to decimate our hospitals and reduce access to quality healthcare, we are investing to help ensure a stronger, healthier New York for all."

The funding is part of $491 million Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program, which is expected to improve patient care through the development of high-quality medical facilities and programs serving the inpatient, primary care, mental health, substance use disorder and long-term care needs of communities throughout New York State.
