Washakie Medical Center is a county-owned hospital and has been operated by Banner Health and its predecessor since 1949.
The present hospital was built in 1962 and has continued to expand services and provide new technology to meet the needs of Big Horn Basin residents.
Today, Washakie is a 25-bed critical access hospital serving the residetns of the Big Horn Basin. It provides personalized medicine while using the resources that only Banner Health can provide.
Each employee contributes to a culture passionate about providing quality care. As part of their commitment, many of our team members find ways to extend their involvement beyond their workday to include volunteer efforts within the community.
This culture has resulted in the receipt of numerous Banner Best Awards for facilities that have fewer than 100 beds. We have been recognized in areas such as staff productivity, surgical processes, quality, medical safety and many others. Washakie Medical Center is also proud to be named one of the nation’s Top 100 critical access hospitals.
“These awards are a direct reflection of the commitment by our employees to make a difference in people’s lives through excellent patient care,” said Margie Molitor, CEO of Washakie Medical Center. “I am so proud to work with a team so focused on safety and our patient experience.”
