Wyoming hospital remodeling for shift in treatment

August 11, 2017

Over the next two years, the Wyoming State Hospital will become a completely different facility, according to an article on the Uinta County Herald website.

The new plans will consolidate the hospital’s campus of about 30 buildings to a single main building and a couple of auxiliary buildings. 

This will also condense the hospital by a little more than half — but even though it will take up less space,the hospital plans to  employ either the same number of staff (around 350) or a few more, although the hospital could focus more on nursing staff than maintenance staff. 

The hospital will be transitioning to an acute short-term hospital, ideally with an average stay of less than 90 days.
