State Rep. Juanita Brent (D-Cleveland) today announced the release of $70,720 in state funding for University Hospital Medical Group, Inc. to continue to provide psychiatric services to residents of the Warrensville Developmental Center (WDC).

“It is essential that residents of House District 12 receive the care they need, with the facilities and doctors they trust like at the Warrensville Developmental Center,” said Rep. Brent. “I’m pleased to see the state making the health of our constituents a top priority with this release of funding.”

WDC coordinates and provides healthcare to approximately 80 individuals with developmental disabilities. The release of funds renews the facilities’ contract with University Hospitals Medical Group, Inc., ensuring patients continue receiving service with their current physician.

The funds were approved Monday by the state Controlling Board, a bipartisan panel that oversees state spending.
