Sage West Health Care releases 2020 report
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Sage West Health Care in Riverton and Lander released a report on what they spent in 2020.
The report said they spent $931,076 for community benefit programs. They also give back to different community organizations like The Boys and Girls Club, Eagle’s Hope Transitions and more.
John Ferrelli, the Sage West Health Care CEO, said supporting the community is important to them. “We are lucky to earn a profit and we feel that it’s important we put that back into the community so in addition to sales tax, payroll taxes it makes sense we continue to collaborate with the community,” Ferrelli said.
Being transparent with these numbers is important to them because they are a large employer in a small area. “The truth is we are proud of the things we’ve done in the past year and a half especially as it related to COVID-19 and its impact,” Ferrelli said.
Sage West feels like they are meeting one of their goals by hiring more doctors to avoid transferring patients out of Fremont County. They paid 300 employees over $29 million dollars in 2020.
Ferrelli said they are excited to welcome new staff to their facilities.
