Study of Rural Healthcare Gets Underway

Laramie, Wy – A consulting firm is coming to Wyoming to do a unique analysis of the delivery of healthcare in rural and frontier parts of the state. The company will take an inventory of resources and project needs in five, ten and twenty years. The director of the Wyoming Healthcare Commission, Diane Harrop, says she hopes it can be a tool for lawmakers at all levels of government.
The study will cost 150 thousand dollars and should be done by October. Harrop says it may include some recommendations.
