Supporting the Patients of PCRMC When They Need it Most

The Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation raises funds on behalf, and in support, of the patients of Phelps County Regional Medical Center. On any given day, there are an endless number of needs that arise for patients of PCRMC. Patients who find themselves in need are sometimes unable to cover the costs of basic treatments, prescription co-pays and other medical services necessary to make them well. That's where the Foundation can help.


Our purpose is to facilitate donations and serve as the conduit to ensure that the generous support of our community is available to our patients when it's needed most. As a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization, the Foundation has a great degree of flexibility in how, and for what purpose, donations can be accepted. Whatever the need, whether big or small, we aim to provide efficient, effective support to ensure the well-being of all patients served by PCRMC.

In addition, the continued support of our generous donors has allowed the Foundation to provide assistance to PCRMC in furthering education, obtaining the most recent and state-of-the-art medical equipment and improving and expanding upon hospital facilities and treatment availability. We dream big, but time and time again, our donors dream bigger. The Foundation has, to date, received over $7,000,000 in donations, with much more committed through pledges and estate gifts. We are fortunate and proud to have such incredible support from our community of donors. Our success is directly linked to their compassion and generosity.

On this date, physicians and medical staff will begin treating patients in the new facility.  Construction of the facility is progressing as expected and is slated to be completed in September 2016.

New Fund Administrators Announced

The Joy of Caring Cancer Fund and the Greatest Needs Fund are now under the administration of new PCRMC staff members.

Cindy Butler (Administrative Director of Patient Care Services) and Linde Merrow (Administrative Director of Clinical Quality & Measurement) will jointly administrate the Greatest Needs Fund.

Fundraising for Cath Lab approved by Hospital Board of Trustees

On March 23, 2016, the Phelps County Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees approved a $500,000 fundraising campaign initiative for the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation. The major gift campaign will raise funds to update the hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab, which is projected to occur in 2017. The equipment currently in use in the lab dates back to the lab’s original construction in 2007 and is near end-of-life, due to a typical ten-year life cycle.
