Ongoing operations are expected to result in an annual impact of almost $19 million in total expenditures supporting over 100 jobs.

Within New York State, upfront construction is expected to result in a one-time impact of almost $55 million in total expenditures supporting over 420 jobs. Ongoing operations are expected to result in an annual impact of almost $27 million in total expenditures supporting over 220 jobs.

Health centers serve more than 17 million patients, about 40 percent of whom have no health insurance.
