Running of the Pink set for June 3

Running of the Pink set for June 3

Cancer is the leading cause of death of Stutsman County residents ages 45-84. Because of this, and because so many residents are affected by cancer, R.M. Stoudt hosts the annual Running of the Pink each year on the first Saturday in June which, this year, falls on June 3. All proceeds benefit the No Excuses Program and the local Women’s Way Chapter for breast and cervical cancer screenings as well as education and other needs. Jamestown Regional Medical Center hosts the No Excuses program every year, in conjunction with Central Valley Health. That day, women can come in for a basic screening as well as a mammogram, all in one quick visit. Plus, if women have any financial barriers, proceeds from Running of the Pink cover those needs. No Excuses helped 14 women at its last event in November. read...

Julie Meyer: ‘Each job is a piece of a bigger puzzle’

Julie Meyer:  ‘Each job is a piece of a bigger puzzle’

Those of us “behind the scenes” in healthcare sometimes feel like our jobs aren’t important because they don’t directly affect patient care. The real heroes in healthcare are the doctors and nurses who are right there in the midst of things, saving lives. And while that is true, I have come to realize more and more how important everyone’s job really is. Imagine coming to a hospital without a clean room or clean bedding? Imagine doing our jobs without the computer system these days…possible, but definitely harder! What if the equipment we needed to do our job wasn’t working or if the supplies needed to care for patients hadn’t been ordered. And can you imagine no food for our patients on the floor? What if your medical record was incomplete and it affected your future care or didn’t get coded correctly and the insurance company denied it. And the list goes on. Each person’s job is a piece of a bigger puzzle and you need all the pieces to complete the picture. So, if you do work “behind the scenes”, don’t forget how important your job is to the overall patient experience. When you do your job and do it well, you are making THE difference! read...

Ladies Night raises $2,000+ for JRMC Cancer Center

An evening with friends made THE difference in the life of a cancer patient. Jamestown Regional Medical Center’s Auxiliary’s first ever Ladies Night raised more than $2,000. The event benefited the upcoming JRMC Cancer Center. “Battling cancer is a community effort,” said Carol Lawrence, Auxiliary member and former Gift Shoppe manager. JRMC is creating a cancer center with eight infusion rooms. The center would be the only one of its kind within 90 miles. At any given time, more than 100 Stutsman County residents are traveling more than 100 miles for chemotherapy care. JRMC’s Foundation hopes to raise $1.5 million for the JRMC Cancer Center. read...
