Jamestown  (JRMC) – With the help of hundreds of community members, Jamestown Regional Medical Center raised more than $110,000 for patient care now and for future generations.

The 24-hour online giving event has more than 500 participating charities that also receive matching dollars. For every $10 donated, JRMC received a match, up to $54,500.

JRMC Foundation Director Lisa Jackson, says,  “It’s no secret that 2020 was a challenging year for all of us. Jackson. “Jamestown and the surrounding communities rely on JRMC. Your gift provides the best outcomes for care, whether it’s a pandemic or not. The community gave wholeheartedly. We are grateful.”

For example, now JRMC can purchase an additional ultrasound machine. Everyday use will include guidance with nerve blocks, IVs and the placement of arterial, central and PICC lines. The equipment provides increased safety and pain control and will be used throughout JRMC departments, including orthopedics, emergency, family birthplace and patient care unit.

Jackson adds, “This support ensures our financial health while we care for the community’s physical health.
