Portales Health Center Gets Stimulus Money

A Portales medical facility will soon be almost $300,000 richer.

The money comes from the federal stimulus package.

La Casa De Buena Salud, Inc. is set to receive $294,533.

New Mexico Senators Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall were behind the push to get several community health centers some stimulus money.

They say those centers provide health care to people who would otherwise have to go without it and that this will ensure they get the help they need.
