Gardner Applauds $638,842 Grant for Telehealth Services in Boulder

Washington, D.C. – Today U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) applauded the announcement from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that Boulder Community Hospital will receive a $638,842 grant to provide telehealth services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Telehealth services are critical resources during COVID-19 and can be used to increase access to healthcare while preventing unnecessary trips outside the home,” said Senator Gardner. “I’m pleased to see this funding delivered to Boulder Community Hospital, and I will continue fighting to ensure all areas of our state have the resources they need to combat this pandemic.”

This funding is made available by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and comes in addition to the $343,222 delivered to Colorado by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support telehealth providers in May and the more than $850,000 delivered to Colorado by the FCC to provide telehealth services in April.
