Jackson Hole, Wyoming is in the path of totality for the Total Solar Eclipse
on Monday, August 21, 2017. To help prepare for a large increase of visitors
to the region, St. John’s is taking precautionary measures to ensure
access to health care in the days surrounding the event.
There are two primary locations to seek medical care:
St. John’s Emergency Room
St. John’s Urgent Care
In the case of an emergency, please call 9-1-1. In the event of cellular
tower overload, you can text to 9-1-1. Here are
instructions on how to communicate your emergency to responders via text.
St. John’s Physician Practices did not schedule patients on Monday,
August 21. St. John’s has increased staffing on all fronts to be
prepared for the potential of increased emergency and urgent medical care. An
additional medical helicopter will be staged nearby to respond to life-threatening emergencies.
Total Solar Eclipse is a unique and exciting opportunity. As the moon passes in front of the
sun, darkness will fall upon Jackson Hole. However, in order to view the
total eclipse, you must look directly at the sun. Doing so without proper
ISO certified eclipse glasses could be seriously harmful to your vision.
