“We are extremely grateful to Senator Schumer, Senator Gillibrand, and Congressman Morelle for securing $1.5 million in the American Rescue Plan to help Trillium Health serve the most vulnerable communities in Rochester and the Finger Lakes,” said Andrea DeMeo, President and CEO of Trillium Health. “The COVID-19 pandemic exposed longstanding healthcare inequities among the most vulnerable populations in our community. We remain focused on ways to bring our comprehensive services directly into hard-to-reach communities and stand proudly behind our commitment to provide extraordinary care for all - always. The American Rescue Plan funding will go towards expanding our ability to serve more people, bring COVID vaccines and testing directly into underserved communities, offset expenses earmarked to strengthen our organization, and expand services to the tens of thousands of patients who rely on us each and every year. Trillium Health is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion by addressing health equity, and we are deeply grateful for the support.”
