Forsyth health-care initiatives gain $93 million in state budget funding

Forsyth County’s health-care sector will receive about $93 million in funding from the 2021-23 state budget, highlighted by $25 million for a crisis behavioral health program.

Much of the funding is being dedicated to infrastructure projects, such as $14.8 million for a planned Kernersville veterans nursing home facility, and $11 million to Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers toward at a new center at 1931 Union Cross Road.

Another major beneficiary is Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest N.C., which gains $6.67 million toward a new headquarters on the Whitaker Park campus.

Sen. Joyce Krawiec, R-Forsyth, said the health-care projects are funded in part because of what she called “smart, restrained budgets” cobbled together by Republican budget writers.

“Because of that responsibility, we’ve seen multibillion-dollar surpluses,” Krawiec said. “This year’s budget builds on that with sweeping tax cuts, critical infrastructure improvements and funding for needed projects that will benefit Forsyth County for years to come.”

Daymark illuminates your path

A day mark symbolizes the often bright and, more importantly recognizable markings painted on lighthouses up and down the Atlantic and Pacific seaboards. As history states, sailors relied on these welcoming day marks during the daylight hours as a necessary tool to orient themselves to their exact location while traveling for sometimes days, weeks, or even months at a time. Waking in the early morning to the sight of a bright day mark in the distance reassured many they were often on the right track on their voyage.
