Hello. I am an RN in NC. My husband is from Casper/Wright WY area...we are considering a move back to that area.. I'd love to have some input as far as hospitals, size of hospitals, wages for RN with 18 yrs exp. ICU/OB/TRAUMA...would probably want to do OB, prefer High Risk OB...any info. would be so helpful. I know nothing about the area, and my hubby is in mining, so he doesn't know anything about the medical intities...
Casper is a town of around 50,000 - they have one hosp. that is approx. 200 beds. Many people would consider that a small hosp, but it is probably the biggest one in the state - comparable in size only to the hosp in Cheyenne. I'm not the expert, but I know that many pts. are brought there from other parts of the state for care that rural hospitals cant provide. For example my aunt went there for a cardiac catheterization since it was the nearest hospital providing the service... 2.5 hrs away from her hometown. I'm not sure about high risk OB, although recently I knew of a PIH pt. in the same town my aunt lived in, she was flown to Salt Lake City.
