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.
"Our mission here at SLMC is to provide world class healthcare close to home. We feel we are accomplishing that goal. For a community the size of Kemmerer/Diamondville/Frontier, we have an incredible facility with all the amenities of the major medical centers in larger cities, but we offer more individual attention that wouldn't be given in the larger facilities."
