Kinsey excited to see more than $2 million awarded to Albert Einstein Medical Center
HARRISBURG, March 24 – State Rep. Stephen Kinsey announced today that Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia has been awarded more than $2.06 million from Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration, which this week detailed a $225 million appropriation to support the health care workforce needs of hospitals and behavioral health providers statewide.
Kinsey, D-Phila., who’s legislative district is home to Albert Einstein Medical Center, said he is excited to see funds going to help the medical center’s workforce.
“Our nurses and health care workers have faced insurmountable workloads during the COVID-19 pandemic; they’re understaffed, overworked and worn-out,” Kinsey said. “I applaud the governor’s effort in helping alleviate some of the stress that has been placed on our health care workers.”
Kinsey continued, “I am excited to see a good portion of these funds being awarded in our district! I believe that the funds Albert Einstein Medical Center received will help their staff operate in conditions that are less strenuous.”
Kinsey has been a voice for health care workers and nurses throughout the pandemic, standing with them at multiple events advocating for safe staffing ratios and better working conditions.
