The New York State Department of Health has awarded hundreds of millions of dollars to hospitals around the city to help them continue providing key services.

The Interim Access Assurance Fund is a part of an $8 billion Medicaid savings reinvestment plan announced earlier this year.

The temporary funding will help hospitals maintain services until all of the funding is made available next March.

In the city, the biggest chunk of the money is going to Health and Hospitals Corporation, who will get $150 million.

Also on the list are SUNY Downstate hospitals, with $20 million, and Brooklyn's Interfaith Medical Center, with more than $36 million.
