GE Foundation--the philanthropic organization of GE--today announced an increased investment to five Houston community health centers and to Partners for Community Health, now totaling more than $2 million. Texas has the highest percentage of uninsured people in the country, with one in three residents uninsured. The funding, part of GE's Developing Health program, aims to increase access to primary care in targeted underserved communities across the U.S. through direct health center support and system capacity building. Today's announcement expands the reach of the original commitment that was awarded to these five health centers in 2010.

The grants were announced by Bob Corcoran, president of the GE Foundation. "We are thrilled to build on the success we've had in Houston over the past two years. From Project Smiles with the Good Neighbor Health Center, to diabetes and weight management programs at Spring Branch Health Center and the Family Life Program at Legacy--these health centers are hard at work reaching those who need it most with quality care," he said.
