If you have medical needs, we are ready to care for you. We want to reassure our patients that we have the appropriate processes and protocols in place to keep patients safe — both those with and without COVID-19 symptoms. We are following guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Wyoming Department of Health in relation to COVID-19 infection prevention measures, cleaning and disinfecting, personal protective equipment (PPE) usage, screening, evaluation, and testing.
CHCCW provides telehealth visits. Telehealth allows your healthcare provider to conduct your visit virtually using audio and video technology. Telehealth visits are available for our existing patients as well as new patients. Telehealth appointments can also be scheduled for Behavioral Health visits with our Therapists and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. Please call today to schedule a visit: (307) 233-6000.
CHCCW recognizes that some visits need to happen in person. Please call ahead so we can determine the best course of action for you to be seen in our facilities. You will be screened for symptoms of COVID. Within our facility, wearing a mask and social distancing are required. Please do NOT delay healthcare for your chronic medical conditions out of fear; seek care through the options we have available before they escalate into a medical emergency. Please call ahead for an appointment at (307) 233-6000. For additional information you can also reach us at (307) 233-6098 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
