Phelps Regional Health Care
Hope. Help. Access.
Our Promise More than six decades ago, Phelps County Regional Medical Center opened its doors, thanks to the hard work and perseverance of locals who were interested in the long-term health of our community and the people who live and work here. Now itâ€™s our turn to show that our health and the health of future generations is important to us. We must pick up the torch and ensure we continue to have high quality care that is close to home and able to meet our communityâ€™s growing and changing health care needs.
Hope. Help. Access.
MESSAGE FROM MR. DENBO
Phelps County Regional Medical Center’s (PCRMC) rich history is deeply rooted in the community. Our organization was created over 62 years ago through the philanthropic involvement of area businesses and residents who rallied together to make the dream of a county hospital become a reality. PCRMC originated from a community need—a need to ensure residents living in Rolla and the surrounding areas had a home for their healthcare. Today, our organization has grown substantially, but the reason that every resident in our community safely, efficiently and effectively, close to home. Providing our patients with the ability to stay home is one of the many benefits of PCRMC that we are most proud of, and we are privileged to be able to offer high-quality healthcare to our patients where they need it most: close to the comforts of their familiar surroundings, family and friends. Without the continued support and involvement from the community, PCRMC would lose the essence of its beginnings, and the fundamental reason it began in the first place: as a grassroots effort between civic-minded residents who promoted and created a physical space to help their neighbors and friends. Since the foundation of PCRMC is ingrained in the act of giving back, our organization has been committed to giving back to the community since the first bricks were placed on the hospital building in 1950. PCRMC is proof of how powerful one community can be when we all stand together for a common good. Sincerely,
John Denbo, Ph.D. Ex-Officio Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation

I give in memory of my wife. It’s what she would have wanted and what she would have done herself. She was everything to me, and I can only hope that my gift has honored her in some small way.”

We give because quality healthcare is essential and because PCRMC gives back and supports our community. We have all been touched by the work of excellent nurses and caregivers, and many have had personal experiences at PCRMC. As local residents and business-owners, it is important to us that our fellow community members have opportunities for quality care and feel supported by their local hospital.” — DR. AND MRS. HENRY ANTOLAK, OWNER OF FORUM DENTAL

We give because itâ€™s the right thing to do. The hospital plays a vital role in our community. It is an economic engine, it is one of the top employers in the county and it brings good people to our area. Every community needs a hospital, and Phelps County Regional Medical Center has been there for our family when we needed it.

It seemed like the right thing to do. Dad started his career in medicine in the Dent and Phelps County area and was one of the original PCRMC admitting physicians. This is where he and mom would have wanted it to go. Dad and mom had six children, five of them went into medicine. While raising those kids, mom was treated for melanoma on her leg. Giving this gift to PCRMC was like them coming home. It’s a resting place for both of them. It will do the most good for the most people–and they would have loved that!” — DR. JAMES BASS AND ANNIE BASS
My wife spent several of the last weeks of her life under the care of Phelps County Regional Medical Center. The staff was courteous, professional and well-qualified. I give because I want to make sure the establishment is there to serve others, as it served my wife and I. â€” OLLIE JACKSON
