Acute Care/Critical Care

Attentive Medical Care for Serious Illnesses and Injuries

Our ACU & CCU do not have restricted visiting hours. We believe family and friends are major part of the healing process. To contact the Acute Care or Critical Care Unit, please call us at 307.527.7501. Thank you.

The Acute Care and Critical Care units at Cody Regional Health are patient-focused, family-friendly units where care is provided for acutely ill medical, surgical, pediatric, and psychiatric patients of all ages.

Our highly qualified personnel – including physicians, nurses, nursing assistants, visual observation staff, and unit clerks – work as a team to ensure we are meeting the needs of the patient and family. Our staff members perform a wide variety of duties, frequently coordinating with other departments and health care providers to fulfill the physical, emotional, spiritual, and psychosocial needs of the patient.

Family Visits & Discharge

Families are encouraged to participate and become involved in the care of the patient, both in the hospital and after the patient is discharged home. We talk with patients and families about their hospital stay and about what to expect afterwards. We also have a nice family waiting area, with children’s game and activities, internet access, and comfortable furniture for relaxing.

Before a patient’s discharge, we provide education on many issues including:

  • Medications
  • Side effects
  • Safe mobility
  • Diet restrictions
  • Physician follow-up appointments
  • Signs and symptoms to report
  • And many other issues
What Our Patients Have to Say
  • "My wife (Gerie Helton) and I traveled to Cody for our anniversary trip to Yellowstone National Park. On September 23, 2018 which would have been the first day of our trip she dislocated her left hip ( which had been replaced in 2009 0r 2010) while putting on her socks ( of all things.) We were staying at the Sunrise Motor Inn which fortunately was a short ambulance ride to your emergency room. The experience we had beginning with the EMT's who responded to the ambulance call, to the emergency room, and the next day on the second floor of your fine hospital is what ..."

  • "ER department went to great lengths to make this "out of towner" feel comfortable. Dr. Polley and Nurse Sarah were very professional and had a great bedside manner. It was my worst asthma attack and I felt very confident that I was getting top notch care."

    - Kelly
  • "Had to bring my daughter for a shoulder injury, on July 4th. I was thoroughly impressed. The staff was absolutely great, very friendly and compassionate. They took great care of my daughter and explained the diagnosis and discharge orders with great detail. I only wish our ER back home could be this professional. I know this is a smaller town and more tight knit, but this hospital/ER could set an example for the rest of the country. Thanks to the staff, physician and PA for the excellent care."

  • "I was a walk in patient on 5/29/18. I had been sick for several days while on a month long motorhome trip. The reception staff was friendly and efficient. I was seen quickly by the PA on duty, Robert Lang. He listened to me, did an exam, diagnosed my illness as acute bronchitis, and prescribed the necessary medication. I was feeling better in just a few days which enabled me to enjoy the remainder of my trip. I was sick and a long way from home so I really appreciated the excellent and friendly care that I received."
