$12 Million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Grant Awarded to Urban Health Plan, Inc. (UHP)
Date:12/9/2009

Award Will Create New Construction and Permanent Jobs in the South Bronx and Create Access to Primary and Specialty Services for an Additional 12,000 Residents

NEW YORK, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Urban Health Plan today was awarded a $12,000,000 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) grant to support a new addition to its main site at 1065 Southern Boulevard. The award was announced by President Barack Obama as part of his plan to support major construction and renovation projects at 85 community health centers nationwide.

The new 53,000 square foot building will allow UHP to increase the number of residents who receive primary and specialty health care in the Bronx; increase the number of providers and support staff; improve the health status/quality of life of residents; bring construction jobs to the South Bronx; help to reduce the unemployment rate; and support the revitalization of the area. It will more than double the number of exam rooms (from 55 to 169), expand dental operatories from four to 20 and increase the number of patients treated by 29,663.

"We have been busting at the seams for some time," said Paloma Hernandez, President and Chief Executive Officer of Urban Health Plan. "Even though we are open for 76 hours, seven days per week, we are still unable to care for all the people who need quality primary and specialty services. This award makes it possible for us to provide more care while at the same time improving the economic status of the South Bronx," she added.

"This grant to Urban Health Plan to support its expansion is the perfect example of a well-conceived and well-executed economic stimulus. In the short-term, this funding will create jobs in a community struggling with high unemployment. Over the long-term, this project will strengthen the health care infrastructure of our borough and contribute to the overall wellness of Bronx residen
