Each center will receive grants totaling to $250,000 over a period of two years.

GE's Developing Health program continues to support primary care with investment reaching $38.9 million for 108 health centers since its inception in Oct 2009. This program is in sync with GE's Developing Health Globally initiative to reduce costs, improve quality and increase access to health care on a global scale.
