HARRISBURG – Rep. David Rowe (R-Snyder/Union) announced today Albright Care Services and Evangelical Community Hospital were awarded Redevelopment Assistance Capitol Program (RACP) grants.
RACP is a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects.
Albright Care Services was awarded $1 million to convert a current nursing care center to a Living Independence for the Elderly (LIFE) Day Program. The managed care program will provide a comprehensive, all-inclusive package of medical and supportive services. In addition, it will include renovations to an existing wing of the current nursing care center.
“Albright Care Services is an indispensable part of our community,” said Rowe, “I was elated to obtain this grant for an entity that provides such important services to our area and to ensure our senior citizens and most vulnerable demographics have access to the state-of-the-art care that they deserve.”
Evangelical Community Hospital was awarded $500,000 to replace the existing 500-ton steam absorber chiller with an 850-ton magnetic bearing chiller. This will increase the capacity for chilled water, and the automatic transfer system will allow the chiller to function in the event of a power outage.
“As energy costs continue to climb under the Biden and Wolf administrations attacks on American energy independence, I am glad our community hospital will be better prepared in the event of a blackout,” said Rowe.
