Our history

William H. and Carrie Gottsche were sheep ranchers, butchers and finally bankers in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Their daughter was stricken with polio and was treated over much of the world, but they felt she gained most from her treatment in the Hot Springs State Park pools. Because of this, they left money to build a rehabiliation center in Thermopolis, WY.


The William H. and Carrie Foundation was incorporated March 28, 1954 as a non-profit foundation providing diagnosis and treatment of crippling conditions for children and adults. Treatment was and continues to be given without discrimination of race, color, creed, or the ability to pay. We have grown into a renowned nonprofit rehabilitation health facility operated by a board of trustees consisting of 25 men and women from Wyoming dedicated to the center and our patients.

As a nonprofit we operate largely from grants and donations and your contribution could make a difference. If you are interested in supporting our facility in any way please click the link below.
