Arts & Garden

Our building and grounds were created to provide a non-institutional environment to be inviting for you, enhance your access to departments and reduce the time it takes for caregivers to reach you. Patient and staff safety were also a major focus, made possible through technology and physical innovation. These enhancements have in turn created an appealing environment providing the best care – medically, emotionally and spiritually. There are multiple ways to support this fund as well as naming opportunities. All proceeds benefit the ongoing maintenance and future needs of the JRMC Campus.

JRMC was created from the collective participation of employees, physicians and our Board. As you tour the hospital, we hope that its non-institutional environment will be inviting to you. Many of the works of art throughout the building were selected for their healing components or the regional feel and artist.

There are over 75 pieces of art that are available for sponsoring. If you are interested in the artwork, view the Art of Healing book below and contact JRMC Foundation.

kornovich healing gardens

Daniel Kornovich, a quiet, hard-working man who loved the land and took great pride in farming left $1.6 million dollars to help build the new Jamestown Regional Medical Center. Because of his love for the land, the healing gardens that welcome visitors to the medical center was named in his and his parents’ memory. It was his wish to have his parents, Edmund and Florence, honored in this way.

It is the largest single gift to JRMC Foundation.

Still available for naming opportunities:

  • nature pond
  • flagpoles (2)
  • basalt water feature (2)
  • bench
  • walking path pavers
  • art

Daniel Kornovich was a quiet, hard-working man who loved the land and took great pride in farming. In his understated way, he told Jan Barnes, past JRMC Foundation Director, several years ago that he was going to give “a very nice gift” through a trust established by his will. “I may last six months, six years or another 20 years – who knows? But I have taken care of the hospital in a very nice way,” said Kornovich.

He certainly did. That “nice way” emerged after his death on June 15, 2009. He left $1.6 million dollars for the new medical center – the largest single gift the Foundation has ever received.

Kornovich had other ties to JRMC. Originally a patient in Cardiac Rehab, after his recovery he became a faithful fan of the Wellness Center. Deanna from Cardiac Rehab said, “He enjoyed the social aspect of the Wellness Center. He loved visiting with everyone.”

LouAnn Redlin, who worked in the Wellness Center, knew his parents from St. Margaret’s Catholic Church in Buchanan. “We developed a friendship right away,” she said, “we always talked about farming and ranching.”

He attended the Wellness Center’s Christmas party and summer picnic. “He felt it was like a family, since he had none anymore,” Redlin adds. He and Dave Mulfinger were coffee buddies. “When you asked Dan what he was going to do for the day, he’d always say, “I’m going out to the farm,” Mulfinger recalls. “He loved his Dodge pick-up and would drive out to the farm in it to check it daily. He was a really nice guy,” says Mulfinger.

Daniel Kornovich will be remembered for leaving a legacy that continues to help countless people whom he’ll never meet. We will be forever grateful for his trust and confidence in our medical center and his gift for the future.
