A new vision for the Wyoming State Hospital (WSH) and the Wyoming Life Resource Center (WLRC) is planned. However, the physical condition of buildings at both facilities makes it difficult for WDH to efficiently provide modernized treatment and care.
WSH will provide acute, short-term psychiatric services for Wyoming residents. Patients generally will be stabilized, treated and returned to their homes for ongoing community-based services.
WLRC is envisioned to continue serving current WLRC clients; offer care for Wyoming residents with intermediate care needs; and, when required to do so, provide long-term care for residents who are very hard-to place, have high medical needs, or demonstrate exceptionally difficult behaviors and require geriatric-psychiatric care.
