Northern Dutchess Hospital to get $350,000 in federal money

Hudson Headwaters Health Network will also receive about $350,000 in federal money.

The two hospitals will benefit from the Labor, Health and Education Appropriations Act, which provides money for improvements to education, housing and health care.

 Northern Dutchess Hospital in Rhinebeck will get about $350,000 in federal money to provide safe access to health care, U.S. Rep. Scott Murphy said.

“As we work to reform our health care, it is imperative that we work to take cost out of the system,” Murphy said.  “The funding secured today for hospitals in the 20th District will go  towards improving health care IT, which will not only create better outcomes for sick patients, but will contribute to driving down costs.”
