Must read

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) – Senator Jon Ossoff is providing support to improve healthcare access in the Chattahoochee River Valley.

Sen. Ossoff is delivering federal funding to the Columbus Consolidated Government to help facilitate a Mobile Integrated Health Care Program in Columbus and Muscogee County.

The program pairs a Fire-EMS paramedic with a nurse practitioner to provide medical care for chronic system users and disadvantaged residents.

“Bringing Republicans and Democrats together, I’m appropriating funds to help establish a mobile health unit in Columbus that will respond to emergencies and expand access to health care,” Sen. Ossoff said. “I thank Mayor Skip Henderson and Fire/EMS Chief Sal Scarpa for bringing this proposal to my office and for their leadership in the community.”

Senator Ossoff secured $139,000 for the project by bringing together both Republicans and Democrats through a bipartisan government funding package.
