Gov. Doug Ducey has announced more than $55 million to help Arizona’s hospitals endure the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.
The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System is set to work with its provider partners to make more than $50 million available to hospitals in the form of accelerated payments and advances, according to a press release issued Wednesday.
An additional $5 million will also be allocated to Arizona’s critical access hospitals to alleviate coronavirus-related costs.
A critical access hospital is a rural acute health care facility located more than 35 miles from another hospital.
