Saint Vincent's Catholic Medical Centers of New York's inpatient services has closed, and Saint Vincent's Catholic Medical Center of New York has filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11. The former grantee has requested that HRSA transfer the Health Center Program Section 330(h) funds to SPHC in order to implement and carry out grant activities originally proposed under SVCMC funded Section 330(h) grant applications.

SPHC has been engaged in the delivery of primary health care services in the local area and is a current Section 330 grantee who indicated an ability to assume operations without a disruption of services.

The short-term transfer of the 330(h) funds will ensure that critical primary health care services continue and remain available to low-income, underserved, homeless patients with no interruption in services to the target population.
