Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services is receiving $1 million to help expand their behavioral health services.  The funding, which was announced August 13 by U.S. Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth,  is being awarded through the agency’s Rural Communities Opioid Response Program.

“This funding is critical for community health centers across Illinois and will help provide necessary affordable care to thousands of families while also helping to stem the opioid crisis,” Duckworth said.
