"We are very happy to be recognized for this level of achievement," says Mike Phillips, CEO of Elkhorn Valley Rehabilitation Hospital. "This level of recognition truly validates our patient care philosophy and is something our staff and community can take great pride in."

UDSMR ranks rehabilitation facilities based upon patient-care criteria that is:

    • Patient-Centered
    • Effective
    • Efficient
    • Timely

 
"This recognition for the 5th year in a row is a testament to the hard work, dedication, passion and exceptional care our staff  brings every day to meet the rehabilitation needs of Wyoming’s citizens," says Dr. Ryan T. Swan, EVRH Medical Director.

Elkhorn Valley Rehabilitation Hospital has been a member of the Wyoming community since January 2008, treating patients recovering from strokes, head and spinal cord injuries, and other impairments caused by injuries or illness. Designed solely for the provision of specialized rehabilitative care, Elkhorn Valley Rehabilitation Hospital is the only free-standing rehabilitation hospital in Wyoming.

Accident leads Rawlins woman to make lifestyle changes
by Nicholas DeMarino, Rawlins Daily Times

Sherril Bailey and Winston

Sherril Bailey, and her dog, Winston, made it through a harrowing ordeal in Bailey’s Rawlins home in late July and early August when Bailey fell in her home and was not discovered for seven days. On July 30, Bailey fell from the bottom stair of her Rawlins home into the 4-foot by 4-foot entryway by the garage. She remained there until Aug. 6 — seven days without food or water.

“I should have died,” she said, recounting the ordeal through tears. “I don’t know how long I spent there trying to get up, telling myself, ‘You stupid dope, why don’t you have one of those cell phones.’”

Bailey is 62 and lives alone, save her Shitzu Maltese, Winston. On the day of the fall, she’d returned from a doctor’s appointment regarding her upcoming right hip replacement. The hip pain forced her to favor her left leg, the leg on the side of her body partially paralyzed by a 1996 stroke.

Bailey fell sometime around 8 p.m. She was largely immobilized and had no emergency medical alert button or cell phone.
