Governor Chris Christie on Tuesday said he’s pleased Clovas Community Hospital received $3 million in federal funding to provide more than 3,000 beds.
Christie said he is grateful for the money from the Federal Hospitality Administration, which is providing $1.2 million to help the hospital build new beds.
He said the funding is part of an effort to make the hospital safer for patients, staff and staff members.
Clovis, New Jersey, is one of more than a dozen communities across the country receiving federal funds for community health care, according to the Federal Highway Administration.
The funding comes as the state grapples with rising health care costs, a slowdown in enrollment and an influx of undocumented immigrants.
Christies office said the money will go toward new construction at Clovus Community Hospital, and also toward renovations to several nursing homes and a new office building.
Clove, a county hospital in New Jersey’s Trenton, was among communities in the area to receive funding.
