St Cloud Times reports

U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith announced Tuesday the Federal Communications Commission awarded CentraCare Health Systems more than $230,000 for telehealth services.

The funding will be used to purchase telehealth equipment and software licenses to increase access to care and services, according to a press release.

“Americans have benefited from telehealth during the pandemic and have come to rely on it for access to care, especially in rural communities,” said Klobuchar in a statement. “This funding will help CentraCare Health System expand its services and meet the needs of its patients. I’ll continue pushing for resources to ensure Minnesotans in all parts of our state are able to access affordable, quality health care.”
