Jorgensen Scholarship & Application
What is the Peter H. and Nellie T. Jorgensen Scholarship?
Peter H. and Nellie T. Jorgensen held a deep interest and love for the Belleville community.

The Jorgensen’s had both been patients in the Republic County Hospital and received excellent care. Their bequest of $124,000 in 1988 to Republic County Hospital was given in gratitude of their success and for the love of their community.

A Letter from the Board
On behalf of the entire board of the North Central Kansas Health Care Foundation, I would like to thank the many individuals and businesses who generously donated to the annual Health Care Foundation Radio-thon. We continue to be amazed by the generosity and support annually on a day when we emphasize raising funds for the Foundation. We are fortunate to have a health care system with such a strong foundation and a community that supports it in so many ways. Although the newly remodeled facility offers many, many benefits, we recognize that what makes our system so great, is clearly the people. We realize that the health care system may face new challenges and changes in the years to come, but our community and the Foundation stands together to face them with great optimism.
A special thank you to KR-92 radio! They offer the Health Care Foundation the opportunity to use their facility for the entire day. Deb, Christine, and Eric are gracious hosts; their support of the annual Radio-thon and countless other community events does not go unnoticed! Again, thank you to everyone who supported the annual Radio-Thon. We not only appreciate the gracious donations that day, but the ongoing support provided by so many people throughout the year and through planned giving and estate bequests. The support of the Foundation will help ensure that our healthcare continues to be the strength of our community for today, tomorrow, and future generations of Republic County.
