Capital Fund Provides NMTC Allocation to Hudson Headwaters Health Network
Capital Fund provided Hudson Headwaters Health Network (HHHN) in Glens Falls, NY, a $5 million NMTC allocation to support their $20 million health center expansion project which just closed financing on May 2, 2023. HHHN's new site will establish a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) facility to serve individuals ages 55 and older with multiple chronic health conditions but who can still live safely in the community.
The project includes the construction of a new 17,000-square-foot medical facility as well as a 14,000-square-foot PACE Center. HHHN’s existing clinic, located half a mile from the new sites, will continue to offer urgent care services. The new medical clinic will provide a larger, more comfortable space for patients and providers. The expansion project is expected to increase patients from 118,000 annually in 2022 to 155,500 in 2030, as well as grow visits from nearly 400,000 in 2022 to 525,000 in 2030. The new facilities are slated to be completed in September 2023.
The new PACE program will accommodate 80 to 100 participants on any given day and will include multi-purpose space for adult day care with health care and social activities, treatment and therapy rooms, food preparation and dining areas, and administrative offices. Participants in HHHN’s PACE program will receive their health care from a team of health professionals who continually assess, coordinate, and implement required services for each participant. This program, designed to serve the area’s aging and vulnerable patients, will include coverage for at-home skilled nursing care, doctor visits, personal care, physical and occupational therapy, meals, social day programs, prescriptions, specialty medical care, respite care to ease the strain on caregivers, transportation, and nursing home care if necessary.
In addition to the NMTC allocation from Capital Fund, this project was also funded through an NMTC allocation from Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC), a grant from the NY Department of Health, and a cash contribution from HHHN.
Across its 21 locations, HHHN offers a full range of services including primary, dental, and mental health. The health center’s first site, in what would later be known as Hudson Headwaters Health Network, opened in Chestertown in 1974. Over the next few years, HHHN expanded to open clinics in Warrensburg, North Creek, and Indian Lake, before these four health centers officially became HHHN in 1981.
