Syracuse, NY (3/4/16) - State Senator John A. DeFrancisco was proud to join with various business owners, farmers, and healthcare leaders from throughout the Central New York community to express concern over the Governor’s proposal to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Senator Patrick M. Gallivan says Wyoming County Community Health System will receive $20-million in state funding to support the facility’s economic recovery and Healthcare Sustainability Initiative.  The funding is part of more than $95-million in grant awards intended to improve the delivery of health care in the Finger Lakes Region.
