Presenting Sponsor: St. Thomas More Hospital

St. Thomas More Hospital

St. Thomas More Hospital, our community’s non-profit, faith-based hospital, is the cornerstone of health care services for Fremont County and surrounding areas with 24-hour emergency and acute care services. Through health care services and community outreach, we are proud to have extended the healing ministry of Christ to the sick and injured in Fremont County for over 75 years, a legacy we continue today. Caring for our community is a responsibility we take very seriously. The people who work in our hospital, long-term care facility, rehabilitation center, urgent care and physician group clinics are what makes us special. They are our family, friends, neighbors who lend their expertise, hearts and talents to providing compassionate care when you need us most. We are part of Centura Health, the region’s leading health care network. Our connection to Centura Health provides our patients with a single electronic medical record that allows health care professionals from our statewide network to have immediate 24/7 access to your health history – because you never know when or where you may need us.
