DOH to Announce Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program Awards

The Department of Health (DOH) will notify awardees for the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program during the week of July 10, 2017. Funding for these grants was first authorized in the 2016-17 enacted State Budget and re-authorized along with additional funding in the 2017-18 budget.

The funding will be administered by DOH and the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) and will help support the objectives of the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program. The purpose of DSRIP is to reduce health care costs and improve the health outcomes for New Yorkers by expanding access to inpatient, primary, preventative, and other ambulatory care services as part of regionally integrated health care delivery systems. The Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program awards are also focused on projects which will help ensure the financial sustainability of safety net health care providers, including long term and post-acute care providers.
