HHS has released preliminary data about how the department distributed grant funds Congress set aside to help providers offset lost revenue and COVID-19-related costs.
The disclosure only includes providers who have already accepted terms and conditions for the first $50 billion general grant distribution from the $175 billion provider relief fund created in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.
The top 10 grant recipients that had affirmatively accepted the funds by May 4 were:
- Dignity Health in Arizona, $180 million
- Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, $103 million
- Stanford Health Care in California, $102 million
- Memorial Hermann Health System in Texas, $92 million
- NYU Langone Health in New York, $92 million
- County of Los Angeles in California, $81 million
- Hackensack Meridian Health in New Jersey, $77 million
- Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute, $67 million
- Memorial Hospital for Cancer and Allied Diseases in New York,$64 million
- Massachusetts General Hospital, $58 million
The dataset is incomplete, as some providers have not attested to receiving the funds. The initial numbers represent $20.2 billion of the $50 billion distributed, and include disclosures from more than 142,000 providers.
