HHS: Zanesville facility among 11 splitting $6.8 million

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The state of Ohio says 11 community health centers - including one in Muskingum County - will get $6.8 million in federal money under the new health care law.
Department of Health and Human Services said Thursday that the money will go to two community health centers in Columbus, and to facilities in Akron, Canton, Piketon, West Liberty, Dayton, Zanesville, Cleveland, Franklin and Bowling Green.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the federal money will help serve 59,806 new patients in Ohio and more than 1.25 million patients across the country.
Nationally, 236 centers will receive $150 million in grant awards.
Ohio community health centers served more than 495,000 patients last year, about one-third of the uninsured.
