Hospital Trustees Meet New Personnel

Sheridan Memorial Hospital trustees were introduced to the new director of finance and supply chain at their meeting Wednesday night.

Charles Burgess, who is a Big Horn High School graduate and alumni of the University of Wyoming, started work on May 8. Also Wednesday, Memorial CEO Mike McCafferty said the hospital has hired Collee Everett as the new compliance officer, and she will start work on Aug. 7.

In other business, McCafferty told trustees that the National Rural Health Association has named Memorial as one of the Top 20 Rural Hospitals in the nation. But, he said, because the association's criteria appeared confusing, he had reservations.

Chief Financial Officer Nathan Stutte said the hospital saw a slowdown in patients in April, and about 8 percent of the hospital population in April was uninsured patients.

He said the hospital did have a loss for the month, but May is looking busier.
