The Wyoming Hospital Association (WHA) is a member owned, private, non-profit
organization representing Wyoming hospitals. WHA
serves as the voice of Wyoming hospitals before local, state,
regional and national legislative and regulatory bodies, the media
and the general public. While the Association's primary focus
is representation and advocacy for Wyoming hospitals, WHA also
provides data services, educational programs, and a variety of
other membership services.
WHA is a statewide Association dedicated to providing leadership
and representation and advocacy for Wyoming hospitals. The Association
through leadership and collaboration, among all healthcare providers,
promotes information and education that enables Wyoming hospitals
to deliver high quality, adequately financed/cost-effective health
care that is universally accessible to all Wyoming citizens.
Memorial Hospital of Converse County is the first and only surgical center in Wyoming to offer the da Vinci® Si™ Surgical System in their operating room.
The da Vinci® Si™ has several unique features designed to provide additional clinical benefits and efficiency in the operating room, including the ability to perform select surgeries from a single incision in the patient’s bellybutton.
Together, these technological advancements provide MHCC surgeons with unparalleled precision, dexterity and control that enable a minimally invasive approach for many complex surgical procedures.
“We believe that the new features of the da Vinci Si System will help us provide the best possible outcomes and is proof of our commitment to provide our community access to the latest advancements in minimally invasive surgery,” said MHCC CEO Ryan Smith.
Da Vinci’s advanced technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hands and furthers the hospital’s goal of extending minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible base of patients. The hospital plans to focus its robotic surgery program on GYN and general abdominal procedures, but surgeons from around the region have contacted MHCC about performing their own surgeries in Douglas using the new system.
The da Vinci Si System can be used for a multitude of procedures, including but not limited to: prostatectomy, hysterectomy, myomectomy, coronary artery bypass, mitral valve repair and colorectal surgery.
