Healthcare: Hospitals in the State of Wyoming

July 2nd, 2012 12:01 pm

There is a reason Americans call it “Big Wonderful Wyoming.” Wyoming is a very large state with towns and cities spread out hundreds of miles away from each other. This is a good thing for ranchers and people who like open country, but at times the distance can be a burden for the elderly and sick or injured people who are in need of healthcare treatment.

Wyoming covers 97,818 square miles of wide open space, and sometimes people must travel from one hospital to the next to get the proper treatment that is needed. This article is designed to help guide people to the hospitals in their region. We will divide this rectangle in to four main parts and explain what hospitals are available in each part of the state.

Northeast Wyoming is able to access:

Memorial Hospital in Gillette
Memorial Hospital of Sheridan County in Sheridan
Johnson County Health Care Center in Buffalo
Weston County Health Service in Newcastle
Crook County Medical Service in Sundance

Southeast Wyoming is able to access:

Cheyenne Regional Medical Center in Cheyenne
Carbon County Memorial Hospital in Rawlins
Community Hospital in Torrington
Memorial Hospital of Converse County in Douglas
Wyoming Medical Center in Casper
Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie
VA Medical Center Cheyenne in Cheyenne
Niobrara Health and Life Center in Lusk.

Southwest Wyoming is able to access:

Evanston Regional Hospital in Evanston
Castle Rock Hospital District in Green River
Sweetwater County Memorial Hospital in Rock Springs
Wyoming State Hospital in Evanston (mental health institute)
Lander Valley Medical Center in Lander
Star Valley Medical Center in Afton
South Lincoln Medical Center in Kemmerer.

Northwest Wyoming (Yellowstone) is able to access:

Hot Springs Memorial Hospital in Thermopolis
Riverton Memorial Hospital in Riverton
South Big Horn County Hospital in Basin/Greybull
St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson (near Jackson Hole Mountain Resort)
Washakie Medical Center in Worland
West Park Hospital in Cody

Most Wyoming health insurance policies are accepted at all these hospitals as WY is a friendly state when it comes to insurance. It is recommended to spend a good amount of time researching the hospitals in your area and checking your insurance coverage to make certain they do take all hospitals in your area. Furthermore, if you must be transported from one hospital to another, it is best to ask which hospitals they are best affiliated with. This is an easy way to simplify medical bills and claims and maybe save money on your out of pocket expenses..

Excellent Destinations Of Wyoming

June 8th, 2012 2:35 am

Buffalo Bill Historical Center

An amazing historical center with five museums under one roof. These museums include: Buffalo Bill Museum, Plains Indian Museum, Whitney Gallery of Western Art, Cody Firearms Museum and Draper Museum of Natural History.

There are several exhibitions that are currently on display at the Center with others coming up this year. This museum has grown over the years. The first time that I visited the Buffalo Bill Museum, it was a rather small building with interesting items that centered around western life and Buffalo Bill … look at you now!

Cheyenne

Cheyenne is the most populous city in Wyoming, with most of the state’s entire population being centered in or around this city. Located in the southern area of the state, Cheyenne is over ten hours away from Yellowstone National Park (giving some idea of the size of Wyoming), but it is nearby to other cities such as Denver, Colorado.

For a true Western feel, a stay in a country inn here is sure to make you feel like a cowboy (or cowgirl). The Adventurers’ Country Bed and Breakfast is built on 102 acres of property (comprised of the Raven Cry Ranch) and is home to a true country experience.

Yellowstone National Park

The most well known and clearly the best thing to do in Wyoming is to visit Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone is not only the first national park in the U.S. but the first national park in the world.

The top attraction in Yellowstone is the Old Faithful geyser and the other hot pools and geysers in the park. Many of these can be seen in one day, but to really experience all of Yellowstone one must hike into the back country or take on of the exciting and interesting tours offered by various guide services.

Nagle Warren Mansion Bed and Breakfast

Located in Cheyenne is another great spot for romantic destinations in Wyoming. The Nagle Warren Mansion Bed and Breakfast is an elegant building that was recently renovated (1997) and turned into a beautiful inn. Built in 1888, this inn takes advantage of its beginnings and is furnished in period antiques and other art.

The Nagle Warren Mansion even serves High Tea (complete with period costumes) each Friday and Saturday afternoon! Enjoy the Amore package with your stay here, which includes champagne, use of the garden hot tub, gourmet breakfasts, a flower bouquet, bubble bath and chocolates – along with two nights’ accommodations..
