Wartburg receives $988,000 in CARES Act Provider Relief as part of April’s release of the first allocation of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services $100 billion in funds towards providers on the front lines of the COVID-19 response.

As part of last month’s bipartisan CARES Act legislation providing relief to healthcare providers on the frontline of the COVID-19 outbreak, Wartburg received $988,000. In allocating the funds, the Federal government is addressing both the economic harm across the entire healthcare system as well as addressing the economic impact on providers incurring additional expenses caring for COVID-19 patients.

Dr. David J. Gentner, Wartburg President & CEO, said, “Wartburg’s allocation is from the initial $50 billion Provider Relief Fund allocated for general distribution to Medicare providers impacted by COVID-19, based on Wartburgs’ 2018 net Medicare patient revenue.
