Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, a Healthgrades top 250 Best Hospital for the second year in a row, is seeking a Medical Oncologist to join an active and highly respected cancer program. Cheyenne is located in the Southeast corner of Wyoming--just 90 minutes from Denver and 20 minutes to Curt Gowdy State Park in scenic/rustic wyoming.
Cheyenne Regional Medical Center is a CMS 5-star rated hospital, the only hospital in the State of Wyoming with this designation. There are only 407 hospitals in the US with this rating (out of 4500).
Our cancer center draws from a large catchment area--Southeastern Wyoming, Northern Colorado and Western Nebraska. Our skilled and tenured staff support this very busy treatment center, and are recognized in our community for their warm and caring patient care. . There would be no ramp up--it would be busy from day one.

Cheyenne, the state capital, is a community of approximately 65,000 residents. The location is ideal, being about 90 minutes north of a major metropolitan area, Denver, but also within 20 minutes of mountains, reservoirs, rivers and wide open spaces. The community offers panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains, 320+ days of sunshine per year and four seasons—including cool summer nights, spectacular fall days and many mild winter days. The region also offers world-class skiing, hiking, biking, fishing and camping opportunities. For those who love the arts, Cheyenne has a well-regarded symphony, chamber singers and community theater in addition to a variety of museums, western-themed attractions and several farmers markets. For the sports fan, pro football, baseball, hockey, soccer and basketball are all available about 90 minutes south.
