Generous Patron Helps More Than 430 Families

Generous Patron Helps More Than 430 Families

1/15/2021 – Recently a friend and supporter of Pratt Regional Medical Center wanted to do something special for members of our community.  He specifically wanted to help patients of PRMC who may be in financial need, “folks who could use some extra help”.  Our generous donor wanted to do something directly for patients rather than contribute to a fund-raising campaign or assist with the purchase of capital equipment.

During a recent meeting with Alan Waites, Chief Financial Officer, it was decided to help two groups of patients.  The first group was those with left over balances of up to $300 after all insurance settlements had been paid.  This amounted to over 400 families representing a total of nearly $52,500.  The second group included 30 families who had been making regular monthly payments very faithfully on their account for many years, some as far back as 2002.  The remaining balances on these 30 accounts was over $42,000.  Our more-than-generous friend of PRMC decided to pay off these balances as well (along with some help from a second donor), bringing the total amount donated to $95,000.

“With all the struggles we’ve all been through this past year, it’s great to have some good news to share” said Alan Waites, CFO.  “The amazing generosity of these two donors for the direct benefit of our patients will be a tremendous blessing for the recipients, and for the PRMC community as a whole.” Alan continued. 

PRMC Mission:  Pratt Regional Medical Center provides excellent and compassionate healthcare services.  Waites added, “Generous donors like these help make our mission a successful reality.”
