Most Americans are forced to deal with a health care system in the US that is broken beyond repair. It's especially challenging to find competent professional health care in rural areas. As a retired health care professional, I expect to work as a partner with my health care providers and have done so with my doctors at Johnson County Healthcare Center for 25 years. When Dr. Larry Kirven retired from practice, I was panic stricken about finding a new doctor who would work with me as a partner, not a dictator. Dr. Ryan Ludwig accepted the challenge and is a remarkably talented doctor, along with all his partners at JCHC. It's not often you find one, let alone two doctors in a rural facility who trained at the Mayo Clinic (Dr. Ruby, general surgeon trained there as well). The staff is top notch and the care is second to none. This clinic and hospital doesn't try to be all things for all people. They understand what rural medicine should be, and what it shouldn't try to be. I consider this clinic and hospital by far the best place I've ever received primary health care in Wyoming.
