PureWest Energy and Leadership Team Pledge More Than $200,000 Donation to Construct Sublette County Health Foundation

DENVER, CO – In an effort to address the urgent healthcare needs of Sublette County, Wyoming, PureWest Energy, in partnership with the PureWest leadership team, announced a donation of more than $200,000 towards the construction of the planned medical facility in Pinedale to provide efficient, high-quality and patient-centered care.

Sublette County is currently the only county in Wyoming without a hospital. With the nearest facility more than 80 miles away, the community often faces challenges accessing essential care – challenges that are exacerbated during times of emergency. In 2020, the community voted to approve the formation of the Sublette County Hospital District. With construction already underway, the hospital is expected to open in March 2025; however, additional financing is required to improve emergency room equipment and ensure the community is able to benefit from comprehensive health services at the medical center.

To help Sublette County build a better future and because this is where so many of us call home, PureWest and its leadership team have donated more than $200,000 towards the buildout of this much needed hospital. This collective effort underscores a shared commitment to the well-being and betterment of the community.

“We are honored to be able to support the communities where we live and work. This donation represents PureWest’s unwavering commitment to Sublette County and the importance of comprehensive access to quality healthcare,” said Kelly Bott, SVP, Corporate Affairs of PureWest. “Safety is nonnegotiable at PureWest, and the construction of this facility provides essential services – not just for our employees, but for the entire community.”

The Sublette County Health Foundation will serve a wide variety of needs, including providing blood transfusions, nursing services, memory care units, mental health support for those in crisis, and dietary and maintenance facilities. “The establishment of the hospital will be transformative for the community, providing essential healthcare services and saving the lives of residents,” explained Sid Stanfill, Board Chair of the SC Health Foundation. “PureWest Energy’s generous donation is truly commendable and highlights their continued dedication to the well-being of our community. Together, we are building a better future for Sublette County.”

This donation will provide timely access to lifesaving healthcare services for residents, reduce the burden on families who currently have had to travel long distances for medical care, and ensure that senior citizens are able to continue living within their community.
