POTSDAM — Canton-Potsdam Hospital has received the last installment of a three-year, $40,000 grant from Excellus BlueCross/BlueShield to help patients with congestive heart failure.

The money is used to provide home care for patients after they leave the hospital in hopes that it will reduce readmissions.

More than 125 patients have participated in the program so far, which involves working with a case manager and being monitored for 30 to 90 days after leaving the hospital.
