Today, Congressman Kevin McCarthy lauded the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) announcement that Family HealthCare Network, which operates care sites in Porterville and throughout the Central Valley, was awarded over $325,000 from the CARES Act COVID-19 Telehealth program.

“As our country takes steps towards normalcy, it is important to remember the health risk that COVID-19 continues to pose. The funds appropriated through the CARES Act, and awarded by the FCC to Family HealthCare Network, will work to expand and enhance telehealth services for high-risk patients in the Porterville area and the Central Valley, helping to ensure that our most vulnerable neighbors are supported. I am confident that this award will be an invaluable resource to the organization’s medical professionals and the communities served as we move forward.”
