Our Work

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.

Congratulations Brenna Heavin!

Cupcakes for Cancer is an initiative that was created by Brenna Heavin back in 2011. Brenna selects a week in July, and sets up shop in a local church where she bakes cupcakes, and then sells the cupcakes for $1 a piece. All proceeds are donated to the Joy of Caring Cancer Fund. Since she has raised over $10K for the Joy of Caring Cancer Fund and the wig room in the Delbert Day Canter Institute was named after her initiative!

Brenna has been chosen as a distinguished finalist for the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards sponsored by Prudential Financial, Inc. Congratulations from all of us at the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation and thank you for all you do!
