services to maintain healthy communities,” Senator Capito said

glad to see this funding headed to facilities in Mill Creek and Belington,
allowing them to continue supporting a broad range of health care services and
ensuring patients can access quality care.”

“Our healthcare providers and
health centers continue to go above and beyond to care for their fellow West
Virginians, and we must ensure they have the resources they need to support
healthy, safe communities,” Senator Manchin said. “I’m pleased HHS is
investing more than $2.3 million in Valley Health Care and Belington Community
Medical Services Association to help provide essential medical services and
ensure West Virginians have accessible healthcare. I look forward to seeing the
positive impacts of this funding for the Mill Creek and Belington communities.
As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue advocating
