It’s always inspiring to see the people who have recovered from Covid-19 finally make it out of the hospital.

A month ago, two patients recovering from the virus were wheeled out of the Cheyenne Medical Center with more than 100 employees cheering them on.

Today, it was Dennis Hurst’s turn. 

Hurst was one of the first people diagnosed with the coronavirus who was hospitalized at the Sage West Health Care center in Lander.

Today, 50 days after being checked-in to the hospital, Hurst was discharged.

And just like the reception in Cheyenne, employees of the hospital lined the hallways to celebrate his discharge.

Hurst triumphantly carried a sign that said “Crushed Covid-19”.

Congratulations Dennis!
