U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith announced CentraCare in St. Cloud $230,000 to support their telehealth services.

The federal funding from the FCC will be used to buy more telehealth equipment and software licenses to increase access to care and services.

CentraCare isn’t the only facility receiving funding as the FCC granted Essentia Health in Duluth more than $981,200 to expand their telehealth services.

Senator Smith has been pushing for the advancement of telehealth services through the pandemic and overall has secured $500-million for the Community Facilities Program to help rural hospitals respond to COVID-19.
