Nobody can predict when an accident or sudden illness will strike. If it does happen to you or your family, take comfort in knowing that we are here to take care of you 24-7.
Specialized Treatment for You
Whether it’s an illness, injury, or trauma we have the right care when you need it. Our emergency department is the first and only line of defense for medical emergencies and trauma in Sheridan County and the surrounding area. Our urgent care clinic is here for you when you have minor illnesses or injuries and can’t get into the doctor. We also have same day medical care at our internal medicine clinic. Whatever your medical needs are – we’ve got you covered.
Accidents and illnesses can affect any person at any time. That’s why our emergency department provides 24-hour coverage for all age groups. And unlike other rural communities, we have a physician in our emergency department every hour day and night.
According to the Wyoming Department of Health, the #1 cause of death in Wyoming residents ages 1-44 is traumatic injury. There is a 15-20% increase in the chance of survival from a traumatic injury if the patients are cared for in an established trauma system, at a designated trauma hospital.
Our emergency department is designated as an Area Trauma Hospital by The Wyoming Trauma Program, Wyoming Department of Health. This means our team has demonstrated an ability to provide prompt assessment, resuscitation, surgery, intensive care and stabilization of injured patients and emergency operations. Regions where a functioning trauma system exists show a significant decrease of preventable deaths among severely injured patients.
The Emergency Room is located in the main hospital building at 1401 West 5th Street in Sheridan.
