(This amendment restores $97,530 GF the second year and a like amount of federal Medicaid matching funds for Johnson City Memorial Hospital. The introduced budget removed an "add-on" payment for the hospital beginning July 1, 2009. Since 2004, JCMH has received an additional payment for hospitals with neonatal intensive care units, because it serves a high-volume of Virginia residents).
