WASHINGTON – Texas U.S. Senator John Cornyn announced Monday the Texas Department of State Health Service will receive a federal grant for its Hospital Preparedness Program.

According to a release, the grant will be estimated at $2,007,613. The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Public Response.

The program works with Texas’ 22 trauma service areas to develop and implement health care coalitions, said the release.

Senator Cornyn says the aim is to better support state and local efforts in emergency preparedness and to integrate the work of the public health and first responders communities.

“As more and more people are being tested and diagnosed with COVID-19, our hospitals and health care providers need additional support so they can continue to serve patients,” said Senator Cornyn through the release.
