Being a home away from home for patients visiting Sweetwater County, the Waldner House has hosted over 20 patients and their family members. “I don’t know how I would have gotten through my treatments and follow-ups, both mentally and physically, if it wasn’t for the generosity of the Foundation and the Waldner House.

The home was a welcome and much-needed comfort in a time of extreme discomfort and uncertainty. It’s nice to have that kind of home, even just for a little while, when the ground is shaking all around you,” expressed a recent patient who utilized the Waldner House.

“We truly appreciate the support that the Women’s Club of Rock Springs has shown to the Waldner House and our community. They are a great organization and we’re honored and thankful for their donation,” noted Cindy Wakefield, the Foundation Associate who manages the Waldner House.
