Laramie, Wy – As double digit population growth continues to swell Campbell County's homes apartments hotels and motels so it goes with the county hospital. Campbell County Memorial Hospital noted record emergency room visits and baby deliveries in its most recent end-of-the-fiscal-year report. Interim C-E-O Andy Fitzgerald says the hospital is trying to cope with the influx of patients. It has just received funding to upgrade its M-R-I machine with a breast coil.
The upgrade means patients will not have to travel to Rapid City or elsewhere out of the county for the test. Fitzgerald also says the hospital has retained a construction firm to plan its expansion over the next 5 to 10 years.
