Cavaletto Calls on Comptroller to Release Funds for Fayette County Hospital

State Rep. John Cavaletto (R-Salem) today called on Comptroller Susana Mendoza to release more than $1.1 million in Medicaid payments for the Fayette County Hospital and an additional $130 thousand in Medicaid payments for their Long Term Care facility.

“I’m the first person to say you can’t spend money you don’t have, but these payments are required to be made by order of the court, the money is there, so there is no reason to hold up paying these bills to Fayette County Hospital,” said Rep. Cavaletto.

The hospital employs 320 individuals and is the 2nd largest employer in Fayette County.

As of today the Comptroller has more than $369 million on hand that can be used to pay back bills.
