Memorial Hospital of Carbon County continues to expand medical resources available to the residents of Carbon County through the addition of clinic based mental health services.
Due to a growing demand for mental health treatment options across the United States, particularly in rural areas, MHCC is implementing the MHCC Health and Wellness Center. Services will initially be based from the MHCC Family Practice Clinic in Rawlins and will extend to other clinic locations based on demand. The addition is meant to supplement existing mental health resources already present in Carbon County.
Leading the program is Joanne Reints. Reints brings over 20 years of clinical counseling experience to MHCC. She has worked in administrative leadership and student counseling for Sweetwater School District for 22 years. Additionally, Joanne founded Better Solutions Counseling Center in 2007, where she has practiced clinical counseling for 14 years. Joanne is a graduate of the University of Wyoming, Laramie, WY. She graduated with an Ed.Sp. Educational Specialist, and a M.S. in Counselor Education and Community Counseling.
As a core aspect of overall health and wellness, mental health services (cognitive, behavioral, and emotional well-being) will continue to be an area of strategic planning and emphasis for MHCC.
Appointments are available beginning July 2nd, 2021 and can be made by contacting the MHCC Family Practice Clinic at 307-324-8494.
