Hello and welcome to Banner Health Torrington which includes Community Hospital and Banner Medical Clinic.
When I joined Community Hospital, I was immediately impressed with the commitment to excellent quality care and a premier patient experience demonstrated by our physicians and staff. Community Hospital is supported in this effort by the resources and expertise of a Banner Health system that includes 25 hospitals and healthcare facilities and over 35,000 employees in seven states. As a matter of fact, in 2013 Banner Health was named as a Top 5 large health system in the country based on clinical performance according to Truven Health Analytics.
Here in Torrington, I am happy to report that we are making huge strides in upgrading facilities and programs. A new 3,700 square foot Emergency Department and outpatient services center opened in 2010 to meet the growing needs of southeastern Wyoming and western Nebraska. In addition, a new digital mammography machine was added in 2010 to continue the provision of state-of-the-art diagnostic testing in Torrington. The remodeling of all patient rooms in 2011 provides a more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing healing environment.
In 2011, we developed a new strategic plan for the health care system here in Torrington. The creation of this plan involves input from community focus groups and key stakeholders to provide us with information to shape the future of healthcare in our community.
Whether it’s enhancing our diagnostic imaging, welcoming newborns in our birthing center, or overseeing our monthly specialist’s clinic, our mission is foremost in our mind. We exist to make a difference in people’s lives through excellent patient care. It is a daily reminder to each of us that we are more than a hospital; we are an intricate part of this community.
It is my personal hope that every experience you have with any of our services and facilities in Torrington meets or exceeds your expectations. We are here to serve and encourage you to share your thoughts on our service with any member of the Banner Health Torrington family.
