SOUTH JERSEY — Last week, Congressman Donald Norcross announced that three South Jersey health centers would receive over $700,000 from the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Through the HHS Health Center Program the Osborn Family Health Center, CAMcare Health Corporation, and Project H.O.P.E. will receive a total of $727,683.
“Everyone ought to have access to quality health care – it’s that simple, and community health centers play an important role in ensuring there’s access for all,” Norcross said. “Investments like these improve the well-being of our neighbors and friends, help us battle the disease of addiction at home and support jobs for hard-working health care professionals who devote their time to helping others.”
The Osborn Family Health Center, which provides patients with access to primary health care is receiving $650,000. The CAMcare Health Corporation provides health care to Camden and Gloucester counties, will get $43,683. And $34,000 will go to Project H.O.P.E., which specializes in the health and well-being of homeless residents in Camden.
