A new vision for the Wyoming State Hospital (WSH) and the Wyoming Life Resource Center (WLRC) is planned:
- WSH will provide acute (short-term, intensive) care for Title 25 commitments; acute, intermediate and long-term care for people under Title 7; and acute care for the geriatric-psychiatric population.
- WLRC will continue serving current clients, but its future mission will also offer intermediate and long-term care for the geriatric-psychiatric population; intermediate and long-term care for those categorized as having high medical needs; long-term care for those categorized as hard to place; acute, and intermediate and long-term care for emergency placements.
Because building conditions made modernized treatment and care difficult to provide, a major construction effort is underway for both facilities.
