Duluth rural health center gets $10M grant for telehealth expansion

Minneapolis Star Tribune reports

The National Rural Health Resource Center in Duluth has received a $10 million grant from the federal Department of Health and Human Services to expand telehealth and shore up workforce shortages in the Mississippi Delta region.

The money will help the center expand its Delta Region Community Health Systems Development Program, which “provides technical assistance to rural health care organizations to improve patient outcomes, retain healthcare providers, and ensure long-term financial stability,” according to a news release.

The nonprofit center advises rural clinics, hospitals and health systems on improving care and access across the country.
