Hey parents of student-athletes, what's your schedule look like during any given day, week, or month? Pretty packed right? We all know the realities of having students involved in sports in our homes, that schedule seems forever full and cramming in just one more thing: impossible. But one item that needs to be routinely completed is the school sports physical, so your student can keep participating, keep competing. Knowing the craziness that is the life for parents of student-athletes, we have an annual event at our Medical Office Building that will help take care of this all-important item.
One of the areas our hospital has continuously excelled in recent years has been in the compassionate level of care our patients receive on our third floor. The dedicated nurses, providers, and staff who attend to the needs of our patients define the continued promise we make to our community: "To Deliver Excellent Care With Compassion."
We're happy to announce that our CFO Curtis Dugger, FHFMA, CHFP, recently became a Fellow of the Healthcare Financial Management Association (FHFMA)!

"Today You Are You, That Is Truer Than True. There Is No One Alive Who Is You-er Than You." March 2nd, every year our attention turns towards the words of one Theodore Geisel aka Dr. Seuss. The children's author was born on this day in 1904, and his imaginative and poetic rhyme and meter carved a path in the hearts and minds of generations of children. His words have helped countless children fall in love with Sneetches, Grinches, Wockets, and Whos, they have provided an entry for so many to fall in love with reading. It's no wonder we have made today a celebration of all things book related!

The influenza virus is being aggressive and has claimed lives, hospitalized people, and all in all, has made and will continue to make a great many very ill.

Coming home from the hospital with your new baby is a momentous occasion. Sharing in those first nights at home, test driving the nursery, getting through nighttime feedings and the seemingly endless stream of family and friends who want to visit. But in the winter months, visits especially can take on a different level of caution if your child is under the age of six months as influenza season comes crashing down into Wyoming.

In the first part of this interview, we tackled how to stay more active even as the temperatures drop. Now we're moving decidedly into mood and overall wellness with Population Health Director Tom Holt.
