Wyoming Regional EMS Celebrates Accomplishments at Open House Event

GILLETTE, Wyo. - September 8, 2023 - Wyoming Regional EMS (WREMS) celebrated a milestone on Tuesday, as they marked roughly one year since they were awarded the contract to provide EMS services to the city and county of Sheridan. This milestone is a testament to the collaborative efforts of Campbell County Health and Sheridan Memorial Hospital, who joined forces to establish WREMS.

The team at WREMS has gone the extra mile – quite literally. They have covered an astonishing 29,395 miles during their calls, which is equivalent to circumnavigating the globe 1.18 times. This remarkable feat underscores their commitment to reaching every corner of Sheridan County to provide critical emergency medical services around the clock.

WREMS has not only been responding to routine 911 calls; they have handled interfacility transports, ensuring patients who require a higher level of care are able to receive it. From January 1 to August 30, the WREMS team responded to 24 strokes, 9 STEMIs, and 35 cardiac arrests with skill and dedication, increasing the chances of survival for those in crisis.
