Welcome to Ivinson Memorial Hospital
'A Century of Healing'
Excitement is mounting at Ivinson as the construction of our new medical office building is in full swing. The structure is in place and the outside walls and roof will be put up just in time for the interior work to begin as winter sets in. The grand opening is scheduled for Summer 2017.
Throughout the construction phase, we have never taken our focus off our most important mission and that is offering exceptional care to our patients and their families. We continue to work on improving our processes in all our departments.
As a result of our push to exceed quality health care measures, we have been honored to receive the following awards:
Ivinson earned a Four-Star Rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. Other Wyoming hospitals receiving a four star rating were West Park in Cody, and St. Johns in Jackson.
2016 Hospital Quality Award - IMH was honored for its continued efforts to meet engagement expectations of patients and families, top performance on quality indicators, and system changes.
The Leapfrog Group gave Ivinson a Hospital Safety Grade of B for 2016. Up from a grade of C in 2015.
Champion in Medicine and Suicide Prevention Award - This award given by the Wyoming Office of the Governor recognizes IMH for its suicide prevention efforts.
Ivinson's Extended Care Facility received a Nursing Home Quality Award from Mountain-Pacific Quality Health. IMH was one of nine Wyoming long-term care facilities to meet the qualifications.
I am so proud of our medical staff and all our employees for their work and dedication that led to these awards. I'm also very proud of the high level of medical skill we have at Ivinson and the deep sense of compassion and commitment to quality shown towards our patients and their families day in and day out.
Although we are smaller in size compared to some hospitals in the region, we often out-perform and out-rank our nearest competitors, even those in nearby states. In promoting a culture of transparency, I encourage you to compare all Wyoming hospitals on their quality measures for yourself by clicking onto the Wyoming Hospital Association's links Wyoming Check Point.
In addition to working hard to streamline our internal processes, we continue to reach out and strengthen our partnerships in the community to support the WWAMI and School of Health Sciences at University of Wyoming; the nursing program at Laramie County Community College; and the Downtown Clinic to name a few. Important also is our efforts to enhance IMH and community physicians in the areas of Anesthesiology, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, and Emergency Medicine. We strive to keep up with the latest technology and will soon be installing the latest 3D mammography Digital Tomosynthesis equipment to offer improved cancer detection for our patients.
We are doing all of this for you. We continue to work hard to earn your trust so when the need arises, Ivinson Memorial Hospital will be the hospital you choose to take care of all your health care needs. The year 2017 marks our 100 Year Anniversary. It will be a time to reflect back as we enter our next 'century of healing.'
