New Jamestown hospital gets $1.6 million gift

JAMESTOWN (AP) -- A Jamestown area farmer left $1.6 million in his will for a new hospital being built in the city.

Jamestown Hospital Foundation Director Jan Barnes calls the gift from Daniel Kornovich "incredible."

The Jamestown Sun reports that a healing garden at the new Jamestown Regional Medical Center will be named for Kornovich and his parents in accordance with his wishes.

Work on the $52 million hospital began about a year ago. It's expected to open next fall.
