Sheridan Needs You. Help Us Save Lives
Sheridan Memorial Hospital (SMH) is seeking emergency healthcare volunteers to help with our COVID-19 response. We have seen hospitals around the country, and the world, experience patient surges exceeding normal capacities. We expect a similar surge in Sheridan County within three weeks and are assembling a pool of volunteers to join our team and work alongside our dedicated, hardworking, highly trained staff to provide skilled, compassionate care for our community.
We are looking for healthcare professionals including active, student, or inactive/retired physicians, advanced practice clinicians (physician assistants and nurse practitioners), Respiratory Therapists, RNs, LPNs, CNAs, paramedics, EMTs, mental health professionals, social workers, medical technicians and therapists, and people with experience as health aides or in medical offices. We are also very interested in hearing from all other health professionals.
If you are interested in helping us deliver care to Sheridan County in this challenging time, please click here to access the initial application form. We will process responses and get back to you with information on the next steps as quickly as we can—typically within three days.
Meanwhile, and for all Wyomingites, the most helpful thing you can do is stay at home and follow the guidance set out by the Wyoming Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control. It is especially important to stay home when sick, limit contact with others as much as possible, maintain 6-ft of distance from others when possible, wash your hands thoroughly and often, and disinfect high-touch surfaces frequently. The more Wyomingites follow these guidelines, the easier our job will be—fewer people will get sick, need hospitalization, or risk death. If you have symptoms, call the hospital’s dedicated phone number (307) 672-1004. For more information about COVID-19 or other ways you can help the hospital during this time, please visit our Novel Coronavirus information page here.
We look forward to receiving your volunteer intake form.
