Screening Can Reduce Your Risk!
Colorectal cancer is the #2 cancer killer in Wyoming and the United States! And if you are age 50 or older, your chances of being diagnosed are far too great to be ignored.
Like most cancers, early detection plays a vital role in increasing your chances of survival - so screenings beginning at age 50 are encouraged.

SCRHCD to Participate in Pilot Program with Wyoming Colorectal Cancer Screening Program
SCRHCD has been exclusively chosen to participate in a pilot program conducted by the Colorectal Cancer Screening Program for home, fecal occult blood tests, dubbed "iFobs". Funded by the Wyoming Department of Health, these tests screen for the presence of blood in the stool which will help our providers determine if you need to have further testing by way of a colonoscopy.
These test kits will be offered for FREE at both clinic locations and you will not be charged for their use. If your test comes back positive, you may be instructed to get a colonoscopy.
For more details about the program, please give one of the clinics a call.
Telepsychiatry Comes to the Marbleton-Big Piney Clinic
The Marbleton-Big Piney Clinic has added a new level of service for Sublette County residents. Thanks to a collaborative effort with Dr. Philip Girling, his psychiatry services can now be accessed by way of telemedicine. His patients can now visit the Marbleton-Big Piney Clinic for their appointments where they will be able to sit in a quiet room and hold a session with Dr. Girling using a very advanced camera which allows access to his services without having to drive to his office in Jackson. We are both excited and grateful to be able to offer this service!
*To schedule an appointment with Dr. Girling, please contact his office directly at 307-201-1254
