Ruby Valley Hospital (RVH) in Sheridan, Montana, started construction on its new 28,000-square-foot facility this week. RVH was awarded a Trust grant last summer for a radiography system to be housed in the new hospital.
The current ten-bed hospital was constructed in 1964 to provide acute care for inpatients, and the new facility will allow RVH to provide better care in an out-patient setting with access to technological advancements in radiology like ultrasound and CT scans.
The new hospital will be designated as a Level 5 Trauma hospital and will have a new CT unit, provide additional space for visiting specialists, allow RVH to use Electronic Health Records, and provide psychiatric telemedicine for patients requiring evaluation and counseling.
