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 2017, Black River Memorial Hospital (BRMH) provided more than $14 million in charity care, community health improvement services, educational programming, supplies, and donations to the community.
BRMH continues to support the Boys and Girls Club of Jackson County. A pledge of $25,000 over five years has helped make programming for area youth possible. This past year, BRMH fulfilled its pledge with a payment of $5,000.
Receiving the pledge payment is (center) Kelly LaBar, Boys and Girls Club Center Director. BRMH Senior Leaders attending the presentation include (l-r) Chief Operating Officer-Holly Winn, Chief Executive Officer-Mary Beth White-Jacobs, Chief Nursing Officer-Melissa Bergerson and Chief Medical Officer-Dr. Esteban Miller.
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 call is placed into the Care Center.
When the button is pushed, trained Care Center staff will ask what type of help is needed. If you are not able to answer the phone, responders, who may be family members or neighbors, are contacted and asked to check on you. The system also provides links to ambulance, police and fire, as necessary.
We offer three types of units. They consist of an in-home landline unit; in-home cellular unit for those that do not have a landline; and a mobile “on the go” device which uses cellular triangulation to pinpoint your location.
The monthly rental fee ranges from $25 to $35 depending on the type of unit needed. If you have a financial need, we may be able to assist you with the monthly charge.
