Public Enjoyed Tours at Sheridan Memorial Hospital Wednesday

Contributed by Judy Hagerott

Doors opened wide yesterday as the public was invited to tour the newly constructed Sheridan Memorial Hospital lab, the Medical Arts Complex lab, and Big Horn Mountain Medicine in Sheridan.

More than 250 people were given red carpet treatment which showcased the hospital’s extensive remodel.  The new lab, where all patient testing is performed, is located on the lower level of the hospital, just below the Emergency Department.  The Medical Arts Complex lab, which has been open for four years, will continue to serve all outpatients.

Hospital CEO Mike McCafferty said that the main reason for the tours is that it is important for the public to know, especially in these uncertain economic times, that the hospital is headed in a direction of growth. He added that they are not ashamed of celebrating their outstanding facility, outstanding staff, and the latest and greatest health care technology.

The public were also given tours of  Big Horn Mountain Medicine, the hospital’s internal medicine practice that opened last November. It's located just one block south of the hospital on Burton Street, where doctors Ian Hunter, Cindy Sharp and P.A. Jason Otto will see patients.

Wow, how wonderful! And just how much more is it going to cost the residents of Sheridan when they have to use the facility now? Another 5%, 10%? Do you have a price list of the services you provide? What is the cost of an x-ray, what about a CT scan or an MRI? What is the cost of a private and semi-private room at the hospital these days? I would like to know what it's going to cost me before-hand?
