Your Hospital Team
Your Cheyenne Regional hospital team includes a variety of clinical and non-clinical staff members, all of whom care deeply about providing the highest quality of care and meeting all your needs while you’re here.
During your stay, a variety of healthcare professionals may visit you, including personnel from the Laboratory and Radiology departments and physical or occupational therapists.
The physician who admits you is responsible for directing your care during your stay in the hospital. As the coordinator of your care, your physician should be consulted if / when you have questions or concerns about your condition.
Made up of professional registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and nurse assistants, the nursing team provides 24-hour nursing care. A nurse manager is responsible for directing and coordinating nursing care on each unit. Please feel free to contact your nurse or the nurse manager if you have questions or concerns during your stay.
We believe that total patient care requires attention to the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of each patient. Members of the pastoral services staff are available to assist you, whatever your religious tradition. Additionally, your priest, minister, pastor or rabbi is always welcome to visit you while you are here.
Our staff of full-time registered clinical dietitians are available to assist you and help you meet your dietary needs during your stay. If you have questions about your meals or diet, you can reach the team at extension 7975.
The Care Management department coordinates services, personalized hospital care, appropriate use of resources and post-hospital care. All of these functions are aligned with patients’ preferences and right to self-determination and choice.
