A CPAP vendor has been given $7 million to repair a clinic that has been damaged by flooding, a source with knowledge of the deal said Wednesday.
Northside Health has been without power since Tuesday, when Hurricane Matthew made landfall in the South Texas region, causing widespread flooding that knocked out power to many residents.
The clinic was built in the mid-1980s, and repairs were scheduled to begin in March, but the flood forced the closure of several clinics and led to the closure last month of Northside Medical.
The new deal gives the Northside Health facility in Dallas more than $8 million in funding, the source said.
North Shore Health and the Texas Health Resources Network also have been working on repairing the clinic, the same source said, adding that the deal is contingent on the hospital making repairs to the facility by the end of this month.
The hospital has not yet confirmed the extent of the repairs, but it has been working closely with the local emergency management agency and has also been using the city’s public safety website to notify residents of the closures.
