We are very excited about all of the great things we are able to do this month to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness! We have LOTS going on this month and it is only appropriate to give some kudos to the people who made it possible.
Our own radiology department worked very hard to pursue, and were eventually awarded, a generous grant from the Susan G. Komen For the Cure Foundation! That grant allowed for the purchase of the many great giveaways and events that are happening this month at both clinics.
Be sure to stop by our lobby in either clinic to enter into our Gift Basket Giveaway! Anyone can enter to win one of two lovely Pink Ribbon-themed gift baskets. We will also be raffling off a FREE Mammogram at each clinic! And please join the staff on October 22nd for a short breast cancer walk through the community! Wear your pink!
And finally - with this grant we were able to purchase multiple travel expense gift cards for mammograms. With no access to mammograms within the county we know the expense of traveling to get your mammo may keep you from getting one. Our clinic staff will be distributing these cards as necessary so that the cost of gas doesn't prevent you from getting your mammo!

Access to your patient records are now available to you 24/7 through our online secure patient portal with more exciting features coming in 2015!

District News & Announcements
SCRHCD Exploring Critical Access Hospital Designation
How did this project start?
On August 6, 2014, SCRHCD leadership retained a consultant, Phil Schmid, from Independent Consultants, to perform a revenue cycle audit for the District. This meeting produced a number of positive ways for the District to improve internal processes. Among those suggestions, Mr. Schmid strongly recommended that the District explore the possibility of moving from free-standing physician clinics with emergency departments to a Critical Access Hospital with Rural Healthcare Clinics. With help and input from the SCRHCD board of trustees, medical staff, Sublette County Commissioners and various professionals experienced in rural, critical access hospitals, the District has decided to actively explore and research this possibility.
What does this mean for healthcare in Sublette County?
We realize that this project has raised many questions for everyone and we want to be as informed and educated as possible about every aspect before any action is taken. We also want to keep our patients and communities fully abreast of what is happening with this project.
