Sweetwater County residents now have telemedicine options through Castle Rock Medical Center to support social distancing efforts.

GREEN RIVER — Castle Rock Medical Center (CRMC) has partnered with Wyoming Telehealth Network to provide Telemedicine visits for patients in order to support social distancing efforts.

“Containing COVID-19 in Sweetwater County is our highest priority. Patients are now able to see our providers from the comfort of their own home for many different types of visits,” said CRMC CEO Bailie Dockter. “Insurances such as Medicare and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming are loosening restrictions on Telemedicine. Patients are encouraged to call 307-872-4590 for an appointment.”

CRMC will still be scheduling in-person visits for essential appointments such as acute injuries and wellness visits for young children requiring vaccination. CRMC has also opened a Respiratory Clinic at 1480 Uinta Drive for patients experiencing upper respiratory symptoms and/or fever with no other symptoms. Patients are urged to call 307-872-4590 for either a respiratory or telemedicine appointment. Patients should not walk into the respiratory clinic without an appointment and further instruction.
