Rainelle Medical Center To Receive More Than $2 Million In Funding | The Beckley Register-Herald

Rainelle Medical Center will receive more than $2 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The center provides primary care services, preventative health care, including mammograms for uninsured women, as well as black lung treatment.

“I am thrilled Rainelle Medical Center will receive this funding so that they can better serve their community, through providing essential medical services to West Virginians and give rural West Virginians access to health care," said U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. "In coal-mining states like ours, it’s important that we have medical centers like Rainelle to make sure our miners suffering from black lung and other health issues receive the care they have earned and deserve."

U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., added, "Our community health centers are an essential component of West Virginia’s health care system. By providing access to primary health services in rural areas, professionals like those at Rainelle Medical Center fill a critical role in ensuring West Virginians receive the quality health care they deserve."
