HealthSource to receive $9.7 million

Two Clermont County healthcare facilities are now scheduled to be built after a federal grant for $9.7 million was approved for HealthSource of Ohio in December 2009.

The grant was part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. It was one of only 85 grants awarded throughout the nation according to Lisa Jackson, vice president of marketing and development with HealthSource of Ohio.

“There were 700 applicants who applied for the grants and only 85 were awarded,” said Jackson. “We got exactly what we asked for receiving the 18th highest award. It was a very competitive process.”
