Boynton Beach — DeAnna Warren, executive director of Genesis Community Health, has announced that the nonprofit organization has received a federal grant for $595,833 from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Financed under the Affordable Health Care Act, the grant will cover a two-year period through April 2014.
“This grant will enable Genesis to provide primary care medical services to 3,500 patients each year,” said Warren. “While a total of 219 community health centers in 41 states will share in $128.6 million in HHS grants, I am proud to say that Genesis is the only recipient based in Palm Beach County and one of only 15 grant recipients in the State of Florida.”
