FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 28, 2010

SCHUMER ANNOUNCES SENATE APPROPRIATIONS SUBCOMMITTEE APPROVES HIS REQUEST FOR FUNDING FOR RICHMOND UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER – RUMC SET TO RECEIVE $350,000

Funding Would Help Construct a State-of-the-Art Urgent Care Center At The Richmond University Medical Center Institute of Health & Wellness

Schumer Worked Closely with Subcommittee to Include Funding In FY2011 Spending Bill

Bill Will Now Be Sent To The Full Senate Appropriations Committee

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today announced that the Senate Appropriations Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Subcommittee has approved the FY11 Appropriations Bill which includes $350,000 for the Richmond University Medical Center. The funding will be used to create a state-of-the-art Urgent Care Center at the Richmond University Medical Center Institute of Health and Wellness. Schumer worked closely with members of the Appropriations Committee to include funding for the project in this year’s spending bill.

“This grant will help construct an essential urgent care center that will enhance emergency care services for Staten Island, which has serious primary care shortage,” Schumer said. “The project will also create a substantial number of new jobs and will make quality healthcare accessible and affordable for thousands across the borough. I will fight to see this funding through the full appropriations process.”

The construction of the Urgent Care Center at the Richmond University Medical Center’s Institute of Health and Wellness will expand and strengthen ambulatory and healthcare services. The Urgent Care Center will treat non-threatening conditions that otherwise would be seen in the Emergency Department. The new center will free the Emergency Department to care for the most urgent cases in a timelier manner while addressing the primary healthcare needs of the community. This project will help deliver affordable healthcare services to a population of more than 125,000 residents, who are underserved and have a documented serious primary care shortage.

Now that the bill has been approved by the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee, it will be sent to the full Senate Appropriations Committee which is set to pass the bill this afternoon. Following approval by the Full Committee and the Senate, the bill will move towards Conference with the House and then to the President for signature.
