Life at the Long Term Care Center

A wide variety of entertaining and stimulating activities is provided. A small, lovely chapel provides several denominational and nondenominational services each week. An on-site beauty shop is also available. We also maintain a secured unit for residents with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias where we can provide the attentive care they need in a safe environment.

This beautiful, modern, smoke-free facility has a focus on patient-centered care consistent with the Planetree philosophy. Compassionate care is provided and individual dignity is promoted. We strive for a homelike environment whenever possible, providing:

  • Personalized, compassionate nursing care by committed health care professionals
  • Access to the full array of Cody Regional Health clinical services
  • A Cody Regional Health credentialed physician who sees the resident on a regular basis

Family and loved ones are encouraged to visit whenever possible. Having familiar faces a part of their everyday lives helps patients feel more at home in the center.

Special Care Unit

The dementia Special Care Unit (SCU) is a 20-bed department for Alzheimer's and other dementia patients. Some of the patients have special needs due to loss of memory and need a smaller, quieter environment. Patient safety is always a high priority, and this unit is secured to ensure the safety of those who might have a tendency to wander or get lost.

Residents are also assisted in attending activities and special functions outside of the SCU with their families and with staff. Family members are an integral part of the special care provided for these patients.

The staff truly enjoys working in this unit. We keep consistent staff members in the unit so there are always familiar faces to the patients. This is part of validation therapy, which is designed to make patients with dementia feel safer and more at home.

Residency Application

An application for residency is available from the LTCC office or by mail if requested. All residents considering admission are required to have a primary care physician with privileges at Cody Regional Health who agrees to manage the resident's medical care during his or her stay at the LTCC.

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."
