Mass. health centers awarded $34m
11 Mass. facilities get grants for poor
Eleven Massachusetts community health centers, which serve patients in some of the state’s poorest neighborhoods, will receive a total of nearly $34 million in grants under the federal health care law, officials announced Tuesday. The money, which is estimated to help the centers provide care to roughly 42,500 new patients, is also aimed at helping the centers expand their facilities and improve existing services, officials said.
