Press Release

San Juan Capistrano, CA – Today, U.S. Representative Mike Levin (D-CA) announced that more than $75 million in federal COVID-19 relief funds have been delivered to health care providers in North County San Diego and South Orange County to help cover costs incurred as a result of the pandemic.

This funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) represents initial distributions of the Provider Relief Fund appropriated by the CARES Act and the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act. In total, 422 health care providers in Rep. Levin’s District have received $75,772,227 in federal relief funds from HRSA.

“As we continue to confront the COVID-19 pandemic together, it’s critical that local health care providers have the resources they need to respond to this crisis,” said Rep. Levin. “I’m pleased to announce that local providers have received more than $75 million in federal relief funds from the Health Resources and Services Administration thanks to legislation passed by Congress. As I’ve said since the beginning of this pandemic, we cannot solve the economic crisis until we adequately address the public health crisis, which is why this federal relief funding is so critical. While this is a positive step, I’ll continue to fight for additional resources that local health care providers need.”

The funding allocations include $39.2 million for the University of California San Diego Medical Center, $6.75 million for Tri-City Hospital, $6.14 million for Scripps Green Hospital, and $6.45 million for Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas. The full dataset can be found here.
