Department of Health Facilities Task Force to meet in Lander at WLRC

(Lander, Wyo.) – The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) Facilities Task Force will meet Tuesday, July 22 at the Wyoming Life Resource Center (WLRC) in Lander to continue discussing the roles and needs of the state’s public healthcare facilities.

The meeting will begin at 8 a.m. Public comment will be welcomed from 8:30 to 11 a.m. WLRC is located at 8204 Wyoming Highway 789 in Lander.

WDH operates five healthcare facilities: WLRC, Wyoming State Hospital in Evanston, Wyoming Retirement Center in Basin, Wyoming Pioneer Home in Thermopolis, and the Veterans’ Home of Wyoming in Buffalo.

The Wyoming Legislature approved a measure earlier this year creating the Task Force, which includes legislative and executive branch appointees. The group is charged with developing strategies and recommendations on the use, financing, populations served, services offered, building status and construction needs for WDH healthcare facilities.
