For COVID-19 Personnel Expenses, FEMA Has Granted $2.9M to Valley Hospital and Cape Regional Medical.

On Wednesday, U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker announced that Valley Hospital and Cape Regional Medical Center would receive a total of $2,909,150 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency of the United States Department of Homeland Security to cover staffing costs incurred during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hospitals, clinics, and medical centres across the state had to implement emergency protective measures during the COVID-19 pandemic due to the threat to public health and medical staff.

Menendez (D-N.J.) remarked that hospitals across the country had a hard time in the beginning of the pandemic because of the high volume of patients, low number of available medical professionals, and scarce supplies. New Jersey’s medical facilities “met this challenge head on, doing everything they could to keep their patients and staff safe in the midst of this tense and uncertain time. This money is essential for hospitals so that they can cover the expenses of protecting their employees (doctors, nurses, administrators, and patients) from harm.

Booker (D-N.J.) has pledged to bring resources home so that New Jersey’s healthcare providers can continue providing high-quality care to all residents as the state continues to recover from the public health crisis. To quote the winner: “This award will guarantee that our hospitals have the equipment and resources they need to safeguard the health and well-being of our communities.”

The Ridgewood, New Jersey-based Valley Hospital was granted a total of $1,196,033 to cover the expense of outsourced emergency and in-patient clinical care services. Middle Township, Ocean County’s Cape Regional Medical Center received $1,713,117 to help with COVID-19 testing, patient care, and diagnosis. This money will be used to hire additional staff and pay for temporary positions for highly trained medical professionals.

Cooper University Hospital hired nearly 400 nurses to deal with the influx of COVID-19 patients, and in September, Senators Menendez and Booker and Representative Donald Norcross (D-1st District) announced that the hospital would receive $32.3 million from FEMA to help cover its costs.

Valley Hospital and the New Jersey Department of Health will be reimbursed $13 million from FEMA in October to cover costs incurred during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, as announced by Senators Menendez and Booker.

FEMA has allocated $126 million to help public agencies and several hospitals across the state recover costs incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, as announced by Senators Menendez and Booker in November.
