Dozens of community health centers around in Pennsylvania and its surrounding region got a boost when the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced $338 million in stimulus grants nationally to clinics that care for large numbers of uninsured patients. In Pennsylvania, the department said, 36 organizations will share $9.5 million, giving them the capacity to provide care for nearly 60,000 new patients, including 20,000 uninsured.
