CHI St. Joseph Children's Health posted the following comment about the project on Columbia Spy's Facebook page:
"Thank you for your interest in our project at 401 Locust Street. As a point of clarification: this project is entirely funded by CHI St. Joseph Children's Health. There is no funding provided by the Borough to expand the building, to create the St. John Neumann School for Children and Families or to operate the childcare center once it is opened. The school which will open in the spring of 2020 will provide quality and affordable childcare for children and families in Columbia Borough. CHI St. Joseph Children's Health is happy to answer questions and provide answers about the project as we are able. Earlier articles that outlined the plans for the school and the building expansion were featured on both Columbia Spy and LNP + LancasterOnline. CHI St. Joseph Children's Health through our Healthy Columbia Project and initiatives such as the St. John Neumann School for Children and Families is making significant investment to respond to community needs and improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and families in Columbia Borough."
