Each month they have a building-wide birthday party for all the residents who have birthdays that month.
The Medical Wing is for patients with more intensive care needs. Licensed professional staff provide daily 24-hour nursing care, administration of medications, and assistance in daily living tailored to individual resident's needs for both short and long-term care. All facilities are on one floor and are designed for handicap accessibility.
The Sublette Center is extremely proud of the fact that they are the only community-based, non-profit skilled nursing facility in Wyoming with a CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) 5 Star rating.
The Center works in partnership with Sublette BOCES adult learning classes to offer practical experience residency for students who are working to obtain their CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) qualification. After classroom work, students can work at the Sublette Center to get their required hands-on training and experience in a accredited facility, which is necessary to become CNA certified.
Three rooms we weren't able to take pictures of were the Medical Wing dining room, which was in the process of being cleaned up, the TV room in the Medical Wing, and the Heritage meeting room on the apartment side of the building.
