JSMC LOGO2 SQUARESHOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (9/26/13) – To commemorate its 100th anniversary this year, Jennie Stuart Medical Center is donating more than $100,000 to United Way of the Pennyrile.

The funds come in the form of $52,592 in pledges from employees at the hospital, JSMC ancillary services, and owned physician practices; and a matching cash gift of $52,592 approved by the JSMC Board of Trustees this month.
 
The $105,184 total is the largest gift the health system has ever made to any charitable organization.
 
“A donation exceeding one hundred thousand dollars shows the JSMC team’s commitment of support for our community,” JSMC Board Chair Theresa Nichol said. “We are especially excited about the employee giving and thank them for their generosity in helping others."
 
The total JSMC contribution to United Way is up 75 percent from last year. JSMC was a United Way Pacesetter firm this year.
 
“We are thrilled with the enthusiastic support from Jennie Stuart this year, and the significant impact their generosity will have through our partner agencies,” Jennifer Maddux, United Way of the Pennyrile executive director, said.
 
JSMC—originally named Jennie Stuart Memorial Hospital—was founded in February, 1913 and opened in July, 1914.
