GERRY – One of Chautauqua County’s largest nursing homes is getting substantial funding to help in their continued fight against COVID-19.
Heritage Ministries is slated to receive a $375,000 loan from the County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency.
Lisa Haglund, company’s President and CEO says the money will provide additional operational capital to fund COVID-19 related expenses, which have placed a large financial burden on their operations.
“We are privileged to work in partnership with the CCIDA, and are truly humbled by their generosity to Heritage during this unprecedented time,” said Haglund in a statement. “Their support allows us to focus our attention on our residents, whose care, as the most vulnerable COVID-19 population, remains our top priority, as we work to continue to provide hope, dignity, and purposeful living.”
The funding is made possible through a $10 million pandemic relief program established by New York State.
