Thanks to an extremely generous community gift supporting Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s Transitional Care Expansion Project, a 100% match will be made for all gifts received during the month of March. Make any size donation to the Project in March, and it will be doubled.
Foundation Board President and Campaign Co-Chair Richard Garber shared the good news, “This matching gift could not have come at a more important moment, as we launch the Transitional Care Expansion to our community. We want to ensure people understand the positive effect this additional space and the private rooms will have on our patients.”
Garber added, “It not only fills the growing need to care for individuals after a hospital stay, but will also help ensure their safe and successful return home. Another positive is that this project repurposes the original 1954 building back to patient care. This is an excellent use of space and, once completed, our professional team of providers and rehabilitation staff will be able to offer care to more individuals. It all comes down to keeping people in Sheridan, close to home and their loved ones.”
The Transitional Care Expansion provides an additional 15,600 square feet of patient-care area on the second and third floors of the hospital. The plan includes 20 private patient suites, a private group dining area, family meeting and consultation room, and rehab space overlooking the Bighorn Mountains. Cody Sinclair, Chief Development Officer, oversees The Foundation’s efforts, “Everyone on the hospital team involved in the planning is excited and confident the new area will enhance our patients’ care experiences, overall results, and the goal of helping patients successfully transition back home. The Foundation has made progress toward our goal of $4.4 million, and we hope this wonderful matching gift will inspire everyone to join the effort. This is a community effort and something that will enhance care in Sheridan for many years to come.”
