Sheridan County Backs SMH Crisis Stabilization Unit

Sheridan County’s Commissioners have approved a Resolution backing the formation of a regional inpatient behavioral health and crisis stabilization unit at Sheridan Memorial Hospital.

County Administrative Director Renee Obermueller gave more information during the commission meeting this week.

Obermueller said studies show it is better to keep patients in regional facilities closer to their home communities while they receive treatment where families and friends would be closer to them.

She also said there are ARPA Funds available through the state to build such a unit.

According to discussions, Johnson County’s Commissioners, as well as other entities in both Sheridan and Johnson Counties have also supported the idea of the crisis facility.
