Nothing is more important to us than the health and well-being of our community. Safety is Jamestown Regional Medical Center’s highest priority.
In light of this rapidly evolving situation, JRMC is following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding appropriate measures to ensure prompt identification of potentially infected patients to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Thank you for your kindness and compassion as we implement these updates.
