Money awarded to One Health Ohio to operate clinics

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON, DC - The Department of Health and Human Services is supplying a local establishment with a sum of money to operate its clinics.

On Thursday, Congressman Tim Ryan announced the $127,937 award for One Health Ohio, formerly Ohio Northeast Health Systems Inc., for Affordable Care Act outreach and assistance.

One Health Ohio has branches in Youngstown, Warren and Alliance.

According to a release, the money will allow the hiring of additional employees at each location to discuss health coverage options through the Affordable Health Care Act.

"I am pleased to announce that this grant will make it easier for Youngstown, Warren and Alliance residents to take full advantage of the Affordable Care Act and get the best health care coverage available," said Congressman Ryan in the release. "The Affordable Care Act will be transformational for our state and country and this grant will help Ohioans understand their options and receive the coverage they deserve."

Health and Human Services will award $150 million to almost 1,200 community health centers across the United States.

Health Care departments are expected to hire 2,900 new employees to assist with the outreach efforts.
