Hospital: Lander Valley Medical Center opened in its present location in 1983.  It is a progressive medical facility catering to a diverse community.  Many factors contribute to making Lander Valley Medical Center stand out among other similar-sized hospitals: a dedicated staff that serves a number of specialized units including a full-time Level II emergency room, Level II nursery and a behavioral health program.



Near the foothills of the eastern slopes of the Wind River Mountains, the eclectic city of Lander is a blend of the Old West and the New West. While the area’s roots are in agriculture, recreation is a major industry due to the city’s proximity to the Wind River Mountains.Lander 3 The City of Lander is home of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) Also, Lander’s relatively mild climate has made the area popular with “active” retirees.  Lander has been recognized as one of the Best Small Towns in America by the book of the same name, and National Geographic Traveler magazine called nearby Sinks Canyon State Park one of the nation’s top 50 state parks.  Men’s Journal heaped deserving praise on the community by naming Lander as one of the Top 25 Coolest Mountain Towns in the country.
