Sheridan Memorial Hospital continues the recruitment process for an Internal Medicine physician to join Big Horn Mountain Medicine, which is the Hospital's Primary Care Practice.
There are currently two doctors on staff; a third will join the team in early 2011. The goal is to have four full-time physicians on staff in the not-too-distant future.
Hospital CEO Mike McCafferty says that another aspect of Primary Care is Pediatrics.
Another area that the Hospital for which the hospital is is consistently trying to recruit is Medical Oncology.
McCafferty stated that they are still waiting on a guaranteed maximum price from CTA Architects on the proposed expansion of the Welch Cancer Center. Once they receive the guaranteed maximum price, the hospital will look to develop a fund raising plan with the Hospital Foundation to pay for the expansion.
McCafferty said that fund raising could take anywhere from eight to twelve months. The anticipated total project cost of expanding the Welch Cancer Center is between $6.5 million to $7.8 million.
