JAMESTOWN,N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The Jamestown Regional Medical Center is one large step closer to cancer care in Jamestown after a generous donation by Gate City Bank.
According to the JRMC, the planned Cancer Center will be created in an effort to reduce travel and increase access to state-of-the-art care. The hospital says that with this donation, they are currently at $1.07 million raised for the $1.5 million goal.
“We are proud to invest in a project that helps create a better way of life in our community,” said Scott Hare, vice president and office manager at Gate City Bank. “Having healthcare locally is such an important part of our community.”
The hospital reports that the donation will allow Gate City to name a chemotherapy infusion room.
“Once operational, the JRMC Cancer Center will offer chemotherapy services to more than 100 Stutsman Country residents each month. Currently, those residents travel about 100 miles each way for that care. As of November, the JRMC Foundation had raised more than $1 million of its $1.5 million goal,” said Lisa Jackson, JRMC Foundation Director.
In this unique partnership, Jay C. Krabbenhoft, office services manager/security officer, will help curate the art for the JRMC Cancer Center. Like the rest of the art in the facility, the JRMC Cancer Center will feature local artists and North Dakota within a healing environment.
“We are dedicated to creating a healing environment for everyone involved, including the people working, those receiving care, and those supporting loved ones in the cancer center,” he said.
