St. John’s 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 Medical Center, 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
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.
– 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
– 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.
– 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 Medical Center, 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.
