WellSpan Health announced it has been awarded a $2.2 million grant, the second largest grant in WellSpan history, to improve access to dental services for vulnerable, under-served and rural populations across south central Pennsylvania, according to a WellSpan release.

“WellSpan is always striving to find a better way to serve our communities and adopt new ways of delivering healthcare to those who need it most,” Victoria Diamond, senior vice president for the central region of WellSpan Health and president, WellSpan York Hospital, said. “With this grant, we will design and implement a program offering that can serve as a model for others. We want physicians and community advocates across the country to look at our program in five years and say, ‘This innovation in clinical service is something that we can reproduce here in our own community.’”
