78 winter 2015 "Sidney is an extraordinary community with a lot going on." Still, in keeping with its small-town image, a central gathering area, Hickory Street Square, is undergoing a $1.2 million facelift to enhance its ability to act as a public area for outdoor events. In addition, the Cheyenne County Com- munity Center is a recreational sports hub with programs for both kids and adults. The health care community has also taken note of the population surge. A new $53 million Sidney Regional Medical Center complex, with adjacent physician clinic and administrative build- ings, is due to open soon. The new struc- ture will maintain the same bed number (25) as its predecessor, and continue to serve a seven-county area. The current medical staff consists of a general surgeon, urologist, four family practitioners, some 20 visiting specialists and six physician assistants. But more are coming—and more will be needed, according to recruiter Janell Wicht. "With so many new young families," she notes, "we'll also need more OB/GYNs." Calvin Cutright, M.D., a family prac- titioner with the medical center's Physi- cians Clinic and a seasoned member of the community, summarizes the rising population phenomenon this way: "As far as Nebraska is concerned, Sidney is one of the few small towns in the U.S. that is growing rapidly—and growing younger at the same time." The main reason, of course, is the expanding job market. Cutright was born in Bakersfield, California, but arrived in Sidney with his family when he was 11. Aside from study- ing at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine, training at Bryan Memorial Hospital in Lincoln and a two-year hiatus in Japan as an Air Force physician, he's chosen to stay in a town he considers per- fect for his needs and those of his family. That includes high-quality schools.
