The Siemens Foundation is providing $500,000 to eight community health centers across the United States to help in the COVID-19 crisis recovery and address racial disparities in accessing quality, affordable healthcare. These grants complement the $1.5 million in grants provided by the Siemens Foundation in April to 12 community health centers across the country.
The Siemens Foundation has made a commitment to support these critical healthcare providers so they can recover and rebuild from the repercussions of the pandemic, and provide employee training for new COVID-19 mitigation strategies, such as contact tracing. The grants reinforce the Foundation‘s continued resolve to promote diversity, equity and inclusion amid national efforts to address racism and promote racial justice.

Siemens Foundation Provides $1.5M Across 12 Community Health Centers to Support COVID-19 Response Efforts
The Siemens Foundation is providing $1.5 million to community health centers across 12 U.S. cities to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Community health centers are the nation’s largest primary care provider for the medically underserved and uninsured, reaching 29 million of those most in-need. As a result of COVID-19, these health centers face a shortage of funding to stay operational and maintain a sufficient workforce, further crippling their ability to provide affordable healthcare at a critical time. Aligning with its dedication to social equity, the non-profit organization established by Siemens USA, including funding provided by Siemens Healthineers, is committed to supporting these critical healthcare providers so they can continue serving their communities when they are needed most.
