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.

· On June 10, the task force will begin in Thermopolis at the Wyoming Pioneer Home. A tour is planned, as well as a public comment period from 9:15 to 10 a.m.

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

· On June 11 in Buffalo, the task force will 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 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 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.
