Join the conversation… Why the Health District is proposing a Critical
Access Hospital for Sublette County?
The History behind Critical Access Hospitals
Critical Access Hospitals became popular in rural areas after legislation was enacted in 1997. The purpose of this legislation was to
strengthen rural health care and provide access to needed services in rural areas. With almost one fifth of the US population living in
rural areas, Critical Access Hospitals have provided vital services in rural areas across the country. The state of Wyoming is not exempt.
Wyoming is home to sixteen Critical Access Hospitals. They exist in communities such as Basin, Lusk, Cody, Lovell, Wheatland and Afton.
Sublette County is the only county in Wyoming without hospital services… we want to change
that!
What is a CAH?
A Critical Access Hospital is a Medicare-participating hospital that meets special criteria to be designated as a CAH.
That criterion includes:
Must be located more than 35 miles from any hospital or another CAH
Must furnish 24-hour emergency care services
Has 4 – 25 inpatient beds
Annual average length of stay of 96 hours or less
With this limited size and short length of stay, most CAHs focus on providing care for common conditions and outpatient care, while
referring other, more critical or acute conditions to larger hospitals such as St John’s, Sweetwater Memorial or Eastern Idaho Medical
Center. Common conditions treated in a CAH include pneumonia, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and acute
diabetes management. All ages could benefit.
What are the Benefits of having a CAH in Sublette County?
Since the development of CAHs in the late nineties, rural communities and health care facilities alike have experienced the benefits of
having a Critical Access Hospital designation. These benefits include a greater focus on community needs and keeping health care close
to home, networking with acute care hospitals for support with emergent and critical care, access to grant monies made available
through rural health care legislation, opportunity for cost-based reimbursement from Medicare which has the potential to increase
revenue, enhanced quality of care as Critical Access Hospitals need to meet certain licensing and survey requirements to operate and
lastly, opportunity for increased jobs in the community which has the potential to increase revenue to the community.
With Sublette County being the lone county in Wyoming without these benefits, the Rural Health Care District is exploring the
possibility of having a community Critical Access Hospital; in addition to our current clinics and services in Pinedale and Marbleton/
Big Piney.

Election Campaigns
Volunteer of the
Month
Back in the 50’s in Wayne County, Michigan,
whoever provided the most beer won the election
and now we are in the 21st Century with computer
contacts prevailing in the money search for victories.
as recognized by our
Board of Trustees:
Can I give $3.00, $5.00, or $10.00
because the race is so close and the opposition
is flooding the airways with attack ads
which we have to counteract immediately?

We all thank Bonnie for her

and the blood draw
Do the Koch brothers ask Republicans for money
or does Citizens United raise funds from individuals
to make secret contributions to chosen candidates
who will serve their personal interests if elected?
DO YOU NEED HELP CUTTING
YOUR TOENAILS?
When did the Chamber of Commerce become red
and why are liberal states called blue and why
do I hear the refrain: “Better dead than red” running
through my political mind and confusing me?
Does money buy elections in this day and age
and does it cost to be on radio and TV and featured
in the local newspapers and does some of the money
pass underneath the table and out of official sight?
Wednesday, November 19th
9:00 - 11:00am
It is obvious that I do not understand politics
as the game is played today with technology
that is so much faster than the personal letters
that used to arrive in my tiny post office box.
Shelly Hallsten will be at Rendezvous Pointe to cut
toenails. The charge is $10.00 and will be on a
first come, first serve basis.
