Inpatient Care

Hospital in Jackson Hole

You likely have a lot of feelings and concerns when you or a loved one are admitted to the hospital. At St. John’s Health, we want to address any fears you may have and do what we can to make your stay more comfortable. As an inpatient, you will have round-the-clock access to medical professionals ready to respond to any issues you may incur while you stay. Our hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and keeps medical specialists on-call so that we can be prepared for any contingency. No effort is spared to make sure you receive all the care you need for a successful recovery.

Inpatient Services Include:

  • Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Patients facing life-threatening conditions are taken to the ICU, where they are in close proximity to advanced equipment and nurses trained in critical care procedures. This unit is strategically placed so that staff throughout the hospital can get to it quickly in case their expertise is required.
  • Primary Care Unit (PCU) The St. John’s PCU is where patients of all ages receive diagnosis and treatment for a variety of medical conditions. Here patients foster a special relationship with a nurse who can be easily reached through a convenient call system. Many members of the care team, including physicians, surgeons, and medical specialists, will interact with patients in this unit.
  • Emergency Department (ED) Staffed day and night and ready to go at a moment’s notice, St. John’s emergency department plays a critical role in saving lives. While both the ED and ICU treat patients in danger of life-threatening problems, the ED cares for patients who need immediate treatment, while ICU patients receive more gradual, monitored care.
  • Laboratory Lab testing can play a critical role in your health care, so we have housed our clinical lab within the hospital for fast turnarounds. Our lab is accredited by the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists, a recognition only given to medical labs that ensure the highest standard of patient care. It is staffed 24/7 in case of emergencies.
  • Hospitalists While staying in the hospital, you or your loved one will have care facilitated by a hospitalist. A hospitalist is like your primary care physician while an inpatient: they schedule and order tests, they confer with medical specialists, and they act as your focal point if your care requires you be transferred to numerous departments during your stay.
  • Music Therapy – Music therapy services are offered for patients during their stay to address a wide range of needs. Board certified music therapists use music activities, both instrumental and vocal, designed to facilitate changes that are non-musical in nature.
  • Pharmacy A pharmacy is located inside the hospital so patients can receive necessary medications as fast as possible. In addition to filling prescriptions, the pharmacy can act as a consult for both patients and their families about how medications should be taken, what they should accomplish, and their various side effects.

At St. John’s Health, safety and wellness are some of our top concerns. After your stay with us, we would be very interested in knowing how you felt about your care, including what was done right, what could be improved, and a general assessment of your overall experience.
