Fremont County's two "new" hospitals were constructed within a year of each other. Riverton Memorial Hospital opened in 1983, with Lander Valley Medical Center arriving the following year. In January of 1994, LVMC was marking its 10th anniversary with a reception and open house that introduced the hospital's $1.6 million magnetic resonant imaging system. It was the first full-fledged MRI in Fremont County, and radiologist Dr. John Bahouth said nothing else in Wyoming could match it. "You would have to go to the coasts or Texas to find a device that has the capabilities of this instrument," he added. The MRI machine joined a state-of-the art ultrasound machine that had opened about six weeks earlier, and LVMC also planned to unveil a new angiography suite shortly after the MRI's debut.
