In Case You Missed It: Helmsley Charitable Trust adds Nevada to Rural Healthcare Program, grants more than $11.3M to hospitals for advanced equipment

November 03, 2021

Yesterday, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak joined representatives from Helmsley Charitable Trust at Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson to announce that the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust has added Nevada as the eighth state in its Rural Healthcare Program, bringing more than $11.3 million in grants to help 10 Nevada hospitals purchase state-of-the-art diagnostic and radiology equipment and expand simulation-based training.

The following quote can be attributed to Governor Sisolak: "We are excited the Trust has chosen to invest in Nevada. The grants will help level the playing field for Nevada hospitals by giving rural patients access within their own communities to the same state-of-the-art equipment found in urban centers. As Governor, I am focused on improving access for all Nevadans and this will go a long way for all those who call Nevada home."
