Register now: GOLF “fore” ANGELS

GOLF “fore” ANGELS is a fun event with a heartbreaking cause.Every year, families experience the loss of an infant due to miscarriage or some other unexpected and unforeseen circumstance. To help those families, Dave and Dr. Mandy Sorlie created a fund to help pay medical bills for those parents at Jamestown Regional Medical Center Foundation. The Sorlies created the Advocating for Neonatal Grief and Early Loss Support (ANGELS) fund in 2015. The fund is available to anyone who experiences an infant loss at JRMC at the gestation of 16 weeks or greater due to unavoidable circumstances. Grant amounts and recipients are determined by the availability of funds. The grant covers the labor and delivery charges after insurance payments. read...

During boom, JRMC nurse helps deliver baby of baby

Spring is a time of new birth. And history sometimes repeats itself. In 1991, Family BirthPlace Licensed Practical Nurse Marla Wegner helped with the delivery of Brock Naze, Montpelier. That week, the then Jamestown Hospital experienced a baby boom: 13 babies in two days. Twenty-six years later, Jamestown Regional Medical Center again experienced a baby boom. Six babies were born in 10 hours – nearing a record, nurses said. And again, Wegner was a part of it, helping in the delivery of Adrian James Naze, the first-born son of Brock Naze and Stephanie Wieler. read...

Renae Lunde: ‘I rocked him in the chair while I cried’

Posted on Mar 1, 2017

My story picked me on December 6, 2005 it was a normal morning at work I had just got done assessing my postpartum moms when the phone rang and Dr. Hoggarth told me she was sending a full-term, gravida 1 (first pregnancy) labor patient to me who had shown up at her regular appointment and was contracting every 5 minutes or so. She hadn’t checked her over, she was just sending her our way with the “normal labor orders.” Some 15 to 20 minutes later they were on the OB floor and I lead them to the room 401 at the old hospital. I gave her time to change and settled into the room and then went to start getting her admission process completed. One of the first steps is to hook up the fetal monitor. As I started looking for the baby heartbeat I was asking about the contractions, her pain level, if she had any pregnancy complications, health history, allergies and then the small talk: what was the weather like, how was the drive to Jamestown… by this time I’ve been all over her belly looking for that baby’s heartbeat and nothing! Internally I’m panicking! There is probably only one reason I wouldn’t be finding heart tones and I am PRAYING I’m wrong. Now, at some point I have to SAY something to these parents as to why I’m looking like the most incompetent nurse they have ever come across….finally after being across her belly back & forth, up & down at least 3 times I said “I’m not sure why I can’t find this baby on my monitor. (LIE!! I KNOW EXACTLY WHY I JUST AM STILL PRAYING I’M WRONG) I’m going to call Dr. Hoggarth.” I walked out of the room to the nurses’ station, my heart pounding the whole way! I called Dr. Hoggarth and all I could say was “I can’t find heart tones!” She immediately said “call radiology and get them up there right now for a portable ultrasound. I’m on my way over!” and hung up the phone. read...

Neustel, Williams knit for newborns

Neustel, Williams knit for newborns

The love of sewing started when she was a little girl, sitting with her mother and learning different patterns and designs. As she got older, Alice Williams expanded her knowledge of sewing by taking an elective course in college. After that course, Williams was — literally and figuratively — hooked. “After that class, I felt confident in taking on any project,” she said. Since then, she’s knitted prayer shawls for the local basilica and baby hats for newborns at Jamestown Regional Medical Center. read...
