I offer my congratulations to Jan Wilson and the NorthShore staff for their due diligence in securing this funding so that those in our communities can continue to be served,” said Congressman Visclosky.
“NorthShore is pleased to be receiving this $1.5 million grant to further assist in the health care needs of the patients it serves in both Lake and Porter counties. NorthShore would like to thank Congressman Peter Visclosky who continues to support federal funding for Federally Qualified Health Centers and the health care they provide to the under and uninsured,” said Jan Wilson, CEO, NorthShore Health Centers.
