WOMEN’S HEALTH PROVIDERS TO PROVIDE OBSTETRICS SERVICES AT HOT SPRINGS COUNTY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL

Community Health Centers of Central Wyoming is announcing Dr. Janet Frost OB/GYN and Tara Blumenshine, APRN, Certified Nurse Midwife will be providing labor and delivery for their patients at Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital(HSCMH) in Thermopolis effective immediately.

Both providers, Frost and Blumenshine continue to see their established women’s health patient base at the Riverton clinic, and are fully credentialed to do deliveries at HSCMH.   With Sage-West Hospital no longer providing Labor and Delivery services in Riverton, this resulted in Community Health Centers of Central Wyoming moving towards alternative options that were in best interest of our patients.

Community Health Center patients, who can be safely transported, that present at the Emergency Room in Riverton can be transported by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital.   The HSCM hospital in Thermopolis, is a few minutes further than the current drive to Lander for our patients.   Labor and Delivery services are partnered with HSCMH and Red Rock Family Practice to provide 24/7 availability.

Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital whose mission is “Partnering with our community for quality health and healing.” is proving to be an excellent partner in health for delivering mothers.  They are offering tours to any of our patients who would like to view the facility. HSCMH is going to be breaking ground on a 30,000 square foot addition to the hospital which will include two new labor and delivery suites in addition to all new patient rooms.
