It's not entirely true that hospitals will not get any money. It is just that the money will flow through the CBO to other partners. So for excample, if a hospital is implementing project RED in addition to a coaching model, then the hospital can get a portion of the funding towards implementation of RED. It just has to flow through the CBO.
