A year after the enactment of the federal stimulus package, a new study shows that $1.85 billion the federal government gave to clinics under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 has generated $3.2 billion in economic activity.

The research was done by the George Washington University Department of Health Policy along with the RCHN Community Health Foundation and the United Health Foundation. Researchers say the clinics' stimulus funding shows that the clinics are able to quickly turn funding into new services and additional jobs.
