Fremont County, Wyo. (June 9, 2021) – SageWest Health Care announces it has been ranked the most racially inclusive hospital in Wyoming by the Lown Institute, a nonpartisan health care think tank.
The Lown Institute Hospitals Index examines the racial inclusivity of over 3,200 U.S. hospitals to assess their success at serving the people of color living in their communities. To create the rankings, the Lown Institute assess how well the demographics of a hospital’s Medicare patients matched the demographics of the hospital’s surrounding communities.
“It is an incredible achievement to be named the most racially inclusive hospital in Wyoming and demonstrate our service to deliver quality healthcare close to home,” said John Ferrelli, Chief Executive Officer of SageWest Health Care. “This recognition is a testament to the dedication of all those at SageWest that work every day to provide the highest level of care to all that we have the privilege to serve.”
The Lown Institute is the first ranking to assess the social responsibility of U.S. hospitals. Additional ranking information, including an explanation of methods, is available at LownHospitalsIndex.org/inclusivity.
