The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) Facilities Task Force will meet in Thermopolis, Basin and Buffalo during June as the group continues discussing the roles and needs of the state’s public healthcare facilities.

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.

WDH spokeswoman Kim Deti says the task force will begin in Thermopolis on June 10 at the Wyoming Pioneer Home. A tour is planned, as well as a public comment period from 9:15 to 10 a.m.

The group will also be in Basin on June 10 to tour the Wyoming Retirement Center and hold a public comment period from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

The group will be in Buffalo on June 11 to tour the Veteran’s Home of Wyoming. The group is scheduled to meet from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with a public comment period set to begin at 2:30 p.m.

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