Wyoming Life Resource Center Superintendent Change Announced

October 18, 2017

An interim superintendent has been named to lead the Wyoming Life Resource Center (WLRC) in Lander, a Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) facility.

Chris Newman, WDH Behavioral Health Division senior administrator, said Jeremy Forbis, a Riverton native, will begin his role as interim superintendent at WLRC beginning November 1.

Forbis has been employed at WLRC since November 2016, most recently as the intermediate care facility administrator. Previously he served as an associate professor of sociology at the University of Dayton in Ohio.

“I am grateful for Jeremy’s willingness to step into this critical position and look forward to working closely with him during this time of transition,” Chris Newman said.

Forbis is replacing Raymond Newman, who has accepted a position at another facility in Kentucky.

WLRC is a 142-bed licensed and certified intermediate care facility for adults with developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries, and is one of five state healthcare facilities operated by WDH. WLRC is part of the WDH Behavioral Health Division, which also includes Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, as well as Developmental Disabilities Community Programs.
