Banner Community Benefits in Wyoming

 

Banner Health Wyoming hospitals provide many of their community programs through their health foundations.

Community Hospital:

Community Hospital, the cornerstone of health care in  southeast Wyoming, is a major sponsor of the town of Torrington's Safe Kids Day.

One year, the hospital gave out hand sanitizers.

Last year, the theme was bicycle safety. The hospital handed out three bikes, 150 helmets, and little flashers to wear when walking or biking.

Washakie Medical Center:

Washakie Medical Center helps the community with free health screenings. 

The Medical Center checks 80 residents a quarter, helping people keep their diabetes in line. Screening participants can talk with a dietitian or other specialist and some have received peripheral artery disease evaluations. 

These free screenings are invaluable to people with little or no health insurance who need help monitoring  glucose levels to prevent complications from diabetes.

The screenings are put on in conjunction with the local Eagles Lodge members.

Committed to fighting breast cancer 
Washakie Medical Center is one of more than 3,000 companies nationwide that participate in Lee Denim Day.

Employees who don't provide direct patient care can wear their favorite jeans for a $5 donation.  

Adding a little more “pink” to our fundraising project, Washakie held a pink dessert contest and a pink balloon ceremony, where
employees purchased pink balloons to honor of their loved ones touched by breast cancer. 

At noon on a perfect fall day, employees released the balloons into the gorgeous Wyoming blue sky. 
Contributions from  Lee Denim Day activities raised $416.
