Newly Renovated Medical Unit at the Sheridan VAMC

Veterans, nurses, doctors, family and the public gathered in a crowded hallway January25, 2012 waiting to tour the Sheridan VA Medical Center’s newly renovated Medical Unit.
“I think you will be pleasantly surprised,” Deb Hirschman, Director of the Sheridan VA said.  “Especially those of you who knew what our old unit looked like.”
The Sheridan VA is a 208 bed hospital with eight outpatient clinics throughout the state.  The furthest are in Evanston and Afton, Hirschman said.  The Sheridan VA covers 70,000 square miles of the state of Wyoming, or three-fourths of the state.  The Sheridan VA provides services to over 13,000 Wyoming Veterans.
“We have a very large population throughout the state.” Hirschman said.  “We do a lot of care through telehealth and the clinics that we have in rural areas.” 
The Sheridan VA is also the mental health referral site for the Rocky Mountain Region.
The newly renovated Medical Unit has 20 beds and a world class electronic medical records system, Hirschman said. “We are paperless and have been for years.” 
The unit also features a state of the art safe patient handling system, negative air flow for isolation, two bariatric rooms, a two-bed sleep lab, and infusion clinic for chemotherapy, hospice beds and a state of the art safe medication administration system, Hirschman said.
