Funding to Help with Healthcare Retention and Recruitment |  News, sports, jobs

A total of $614,534 is coming to Warren County. Rapp specifically highlighted the $110 million allocated for critical access hospitals, high-volume Medicaid patient facilities and behavioral/psychiatric providers. According to Rapp’s statement, the legislation requires all funding to be directed to retention and recruitment programs for staff. Hospital executives and administration, contracted staff, and physicians would not be eligible for payments under the bill; the funding would only be directed to nurses and other hospital employees.

“I am confident that this funding will provide the working capital to implement the necessary retention solutions and additional incentives that will expand access to outstanding health care, not only in the rural communities which I represent, but across the Commonwealth.” “As I have consistently emphasized as chair of the House Health Committee, we are blessed to have so many hardworking nurses and other highly-skilled health care professionals, but there are simply not enough of them to meet current treatment demands,” Rapp said.

The bill was signed into law by Gov. Tom Wolf on Wednesday. It’s part of HB 253 and is aimed at aiding hospitals, behavioral health centers, rural health care facilities and frontline health care workers, according to a statement from State Rep. Kathy Rapp.

“This is a major, bipartisan investment in supporting the health care workers who have done so much for our commonwealth over the past two years. This funding will provide needed relief to our hospitals and health care workers.” “My administration convened a working group including all four caucuses in the General Assembly three weeks ago to take action on this issue,” Gov. Tom Wolf said in a statement earlier this week. House Bill 253 is the result of those conversations, and I am proud of what we have accomplished in just a few weeks. It’s proof of what democracy can achieve when we work together to make a difference in the lives of Pennsylvanians.
