Why Work Here?

Live and work in beautiful Southwest Wyoming!

Lincoln County Miner's Hospital Healthcare in the Kemmerer / Diamondville area has come a long way. Back in 1913, the United Mineworkers' Association established a tiny medical facility at the top of Park Drive above Archie Neil Park. Later that year, the name became Lincoln County Miner's Hospital. South Lincoln Hospital District In 1959 a decision was made to establish a taxing entity to support the hospital and the South Lincoln Hospital District was formed in 1960, with a 20-bed hospital being dedicated in 1961. The year 2010 marked the 50th Anniversary of the Hospital District! South Lincoln Medical Center Construction on a new hospital began in 1986 and a dedication service was held in 1988. Since that time we've seen the addition of the 24-bed Nursing Center and the Emergency Medical Services Multi-Purpose Building in 1999. One Constant - Quality of Healthcare Though the past years have brought changes, advances and additions to the facility and campus known as South Lincoln Medical Center, one constant has remained: the quality of healthcare.
