Yarmuth Announces $400,000 for Louisville Health Center


Facility Provides Health Services for 40,000 People


(Washington, DC) Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) announced that Louisville’s Family Health Center Inc. has been awarded a grant for more than $400,000 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  The Family Health Center is a non-profit organization, serving more than 40,000 Louisville residents by providing primary and preventative healthcare regardless of their ability to pay.  Among the resources they provide are a physician and nurse practitioner, dental care, nurses, lab work and x-rays, a pharmacy, and obstetrics.

“Right now, in the midst of a healthcare crisis in which nearly 50 million American have no health insurance and millions more are not adequately covered, the services that Family Health Center provides are invaluable,” Congressman Yarmuth said.  “I commend them for their work and am very pleased that HHS decided to reward their dedication to our community.”
