As a community bank with roots in the Upper Midwest, Dacotah Bank knows how important basic services are to rural America. That’s why it chose Jamestown Regional Medical Center Cancer Center as its recipient of a $25,000 gift.

“Dacotah Bank came to Jamestown because the town is a hub for central North Dakota,” said Casey Henderson, Dacotah Bank’s Jamestown market president. “Dacotah Bank wants to be vital members of the community. We realize that there are many organizations to support, so we take pride in working with multiple groups and also investing in our employees so they can be out in the community and involved.”

The JRMC Cancer Center will offer chemotherapy serviecs to more than 100 area individuals each month. Those are services that these individuals would otherwise have to drive 100 miles or more to receive.

“When you or a loved one is sick, those miles matter,” said JRMC Foundation Director Lisa Jackson. “Studies show the care is better when it is close to home.”
