JRMC Carrington Clinic donates funds to Daily Bread
The JRMC Carrington Clinic hosted a cookout in August. More than 120 people attended the event, which celebrated the clinic’s one-year anniversary. As part of the cookout, guests could make a freewill donation to Carrington Daily Bread.
On Aug. 17, Dr. Michael T. Dean, Jamestown Regional Medical Center orthopedic surgeon, delivered $888 to Anna Grenz, who volunteers with Carrington Daily Bread.
The burden of travel can add expense, stress and anxiety to the life of a person who should focus on healing. That’s why JRMC opened the JRMC Carrington Clinic in summer 2017.
In one year, the JRMC Carrington Clinic served about 300 people, saving them 24,000 miles of travel.
“As a rural hospital, we know how important healthy food and healthy bodies are,” said Trisha Jungels, JRMC interim president and CEO. “Our vision is to be the best rural hospital in the country. We can do that by helping our communities through this donation and by offering specialty services in this area.”
JRMC Carrington Clinic specialists include Marissa M. Leese, AuD., audiologist; Dr. Dean and Dr. Timothy Volk, orthopedic surgeons; Dr. Rachael Renschler, podiatrist; and Dr. Robert Bates, urologist. They specialize in helping people hear, healing achy joints, reducing foot pain and treating conditions of the bladder, kidney and prostate.
The JRMC Carrington Clinic is located at 923 1st St S., adjacent to the Dr. Jay Bauer dental clinic. Learn more at www.jrmcnd.com/CarringtonClinic.
