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.

32nd Annual Cancer Gala 32nd Annual Cancer Gala @ Havener Center

Cancer Gala 2016

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.
