Celebrating miracles during National Hospital Week

May 8, 2015

From May 10-16, we will recognize National Hospital Week, an annual commemoration that celebrates the people, organizations and technologies that make trustworthy, reliable healthcare available in communities nationwide. A healthcare tradition since 1921, National Hospital Week commends the contributions that hospital physicians, nurses, and staff make in big cities, small towns and rural regions across the United States each day.  

This year, the team at SageWest Health Care will unite with the 5.6 million healthcare workers from around the county to reflect on our work.

SageWest Health Care serves Fremont County with a singular mission of making our communities healthier. Each day, our staff strives to find new ways to achieve this mission by seeking to enhance quality care and patient safety, expanding the services we provide, improving our patients’ experiences, and reaching out to people in need to ensure that they have access to the care they need to be healthy.  We are proud of what we do – both within our hospital walls and outside of them – to contribute to the health and wellbeing of this region.

In 2014, we completed the addition of a new telemetry system in both hospitals. We have also added new equipment and made a number of quality improvements to our state-of-the-art facilities, including a 64-slice CT scanner, upgraded information technology systems in our women’s health units and the addition of the wound care and hyperbaric oxygen treatment center. In 2015, we will begin major upgrades of the admissions areas, the emergency department in Riverton and the behavioral health unit in Lander.

No matter the circumstances of your arrival at SageWest Health Care in Riverton or Lander, we are honored to be a part of your life and to have the opportunity to work alongside you and your family in the delivery of your care.  We take the responsibility of being with you during your best and worst times very seriously – as you welcome a new baby into the world, as you struggle with chronic illness, as you reach exciting wellness milestones, and as you wish a loved one a final farewell.  While we cannot guarantee that every visit to our facility will result in a miracle, we can promise that our 500 staff members will always work tirelessly for and with you to achieve the best possible outcomes. 

The SageWest Health Care team thanks everyone in this community for your support.  We are looking forward to celebrating National Hospital Week with you, and hope you will join us in recognizing the wonderful staff of physicians, nurses and employees who help ensure the health of this region every day.
