    Hi! I saw your post and thought I would share what information I have.
    My husband is military and we were stationed in Cheyenne for 3.5 years.
    We left there in 1998 and I worked at the only hospital there. It is called
    United Medical Center.. they have east and west buildings, which are about
    10 minutes from one another.

    The east building if I remember correctly is mainly mental health and a
    rehab (strokes, MVAs etc) The west building is where I worked, it isnt a
    large hospital but was a great place to work. I worked there as a nurse
    assistant while attending college. The floors arent large by any means.
    They has a tele floor, small step down and small ICU. I worked on the ortho/neuro floor and I think it was right at 18 beds. The peds area was
    right across from us and it was very small.

    I can say I loved the people and the atmosphere. I was only there a year,
    but it was so hard to leave such a great nursing team! I cant think of anything else to share. I do remember they were doing some add-ons to the hospital...parking garage and I am not sure what else.

    I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for info wise..but I hope it helped a little. I loved Cheyenne even though it is in the middle of nowhere, the town is nice sized..but not too small. The schools were great and the weather crazy. I'm in southwestern IL now so its an adjustment

    Best of luck to you!
