McEachin announces $2.5M in federal grant funding for hospital preparedness

donald mceachinCongressman A. Donald McEachin announced a grant from the Department of Health and Human Services to the Virginia State Board of Health for hospital preparedness for $2,560,402.

“If we didn’t know it before, the last few months have more than demonstrated the importance of hospitals being ready with necessary supplies – from beds to ventilators to personal protective equipment – for any eventualities that may occur. Unfortunately, as we wait for another potential wave of this pandemic, funding to help hospitals be ready is absolutely imperative,” said McEachin.
