Outreach Services

Our goal is to enhance the health and well-being of all people we serve. We also want to be able to reinvest in the community's future healthcare needs. In 2016, Black River Memorial Hospital provided more than $15 million in charity care, community health improvement services, educational programming, supplies and donations to the community. 

In an effort to serve organizations in need, Black River Memorial Hospital (BRMH) continues its monthly Dress Down Day Donation program. Local charities chosen by our employees, such as Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers and Together for Jackson County Kids, have benefited from this program.

PERS

Our Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) provides 24-hour assistance for people of all ages and abilities.

A PERS device is worn around your neck or wrist, and with just the push of a button, a phone call is placed into the Care Center. 

When the button is pushed, trained Care Center staff call and ask what type of help is needed. If you aren't able to answer the phone, responders, who may be family members or neighbors, are contacted and asked to check on you.

After a responder arrives at your home, one of the Care Center staff will call to determine if additional help is needed. The system also provides links to ambulance, police and fire, as necessary.

Volunteers install the PERS unit in your home, and all it requires is a local landline phone provider. The monthly rental fee ranges from $25 to $30. For an additional cost, the unit may use a cellular line based on signal strength and location. If you have a financial need, we may be able to assist you with the monthly charge.

For more information, contact Sara McCullough at 715-284-1360.
