RAWLINS, Wyo. — The city of Rawlins has been down to one doctor certified in obstetrics.
Carbon County Memorial Hospital officials say they are working on recruiting OB doctors to the area.
Hospital CEO Ned Hill maintains there is no emergency situation with just one OB doctor.
Dr. David Cesko is the only OB doctor still in the Rawlins area. The only other option for patients is driving to Laramie or Casper.
Cesko tells the Rawlins Daily Times that he's prepared to handle all cases to ensure the proper care of patients.
Cesko has been the sole OB doctor in Rawlins once before for a period of about 16 months. He will have a couple of doctors assisting him by being on call a couple of weekends each month.
