I had open-heart surgery in St. Louis, but have chosen to do my rehabilitation at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. Part of that choice was due to the fact that my surgeons were so complimentary of the rehab team in Rolla. I certainly have not been let down by my experience. I have great respect for the nurses and doctors at Phelps County Regional Medical Center because they work so hard and are great at what they do.
It's the sense of community. People don’t have to travel to St. Louis or Springfield for quality care, and that makes a difference.
The Hospital has given so much to us. It's a world-class facility in a small community.
Because we are a 100% employee-owned bank, Phelps County Bank has a large team of committed owners who live in this community. It makes us passionate about the quality of life for our families, customers and our neighbors. Supporting a growing, healthy hospital is a win-win for us.
My wife spent several of the last weeks of her life under the care of Phelps County Regional Medical Center. The staff was courteous, professional and well-qualified. I give because I want to make sure the establishment is there to serve others, as it served my wife and I.
Fidelity Communications always likes to give back to the communities we serve. Phelps County Regional Medical Center is an excellent customer of ours, and we see tremendous value in the services they provide to the people of our community and want to do what we can to support them.
We give because it’s the right thing to do. The hospital plays a vital role in our community. It is an economic engine; it is one of the top employers in the county and it brings good people to our area. Every community needs a hospital, and Phelps County Regional Medical Center has been there for our family when we needed it.
If everyone would do their part and pitch in what they can, it would make a huge impact on our community. We sure enjoy living in a rural area, but we want to make sure we have a top-notch hospital available locally, when we need it. We’ve been served well by this institution, and we want to see it prosper.
I give because I feel I have been very fortunate, indeed blessed. This is one way for me to help those who are not so fortunate. I love this hospital and the people here, and I think we offer great services to our patients and our community. [The Foundation] helps us expand those services beyond our walls.
Guardian Angels slip into our lives at just the right moment, with a kind word and a gentle touch that goes above and beyond. They never ask for anything in return, yet we often want to express our gratitude in a meaningful way. Make a gift in your special Angel's honor.
The citizens of south central Missouri deserve access to world-class, coordinated cancer care, close to home, and PCRMC is responding to this critical community health issue. The Delbert Day Cancer Institute will provide a seamless transition between services, whether it is radiation, surgery or chemotherapy.
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.

As the construction of the Delbert Day Cancer Institute at Phelps County Regional Medical Center progresses, it was recently announced that the facility's expected opening date will be January 9, 2017.

The Cancer Gala will celebrate its 32nd year of raising awareness and support for local cancer care and research on Saturday, February 18, 2017, at the Havener Center on the MS&T Campus. We continue the tradition of keeping 100% of the proceeds local from this night of celebration, with proceeds benefiting the new Delbert Day Cancer Institute (DDCI), the Joy of Caring (JOC) Cancer Fund at the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation as well as research conducted through the DDCI.
The JOC helps patients meet the extra financial demands of cancer treatment by assisting with essential prescription medications, food supplements, wigs, travel expenses and other personal costs associated with their cancer treatment.
Area cancer patients will have access to current research, state-of-the-art technology and trial studies through the DDCI. The vision of the DDCI is “to ensure that local cancer patients receive the best care available through access to world-class cancer care treatments and services.”
We appreciate your continued support for this event which has helped so many of our friends and family.
Please let your committee member know if you’d like an award or if you’d prefer to donate the cost of the award to the night’s proceeds.
