It is with great anticipation that Sheridan Memorial Hospital and The Foundation announces the official opening of the new Transitional Care Unit – right here at home. The expansion of our transitional care services meets the changing needs of our patients and is an investment in healthcare for the future of our community and the region.
The new Transitional Care space on the 2nd and 3rd floors of our hospital building were opened to patients on September 12th and includes 20 comfortable private suites, each with its own bathroom. A separate dining area and spacious therapy gym – both with striking views of the Big Horn Mountains – make the 15,600 square feet space a welcome expansion from our current 8-bed unit.
“The response from our community in support of the new Transitional Care Expansion is truly remarkable,” shares Director of Donor Relations, Ada Kirven. “We are grateful to the over 1,000 local foundations, donors, physicians, and employee partners who contributed to the Transitional Care Expansion project. We celebrate the opening of this expansion and the donor’s generosity that made this all possible. Their support ensures families and friends have a recuperative and supportive place to heal following an injury, surgery, or serious illness right here at home.”
“The hospital is thrilled to be repurposing these floors of the main hospital and see patients return to this space that was originally used to care for our community members when the hospital opened in 1954,” stated Cody Sinclair, Chief Development Officer. “We are so excited to get to share this with everyone and what this expanding services means for our families, our friends, and our entire community.”
