Wyoming approves $10M for new hospital

Wyoming's State Loan and Investment Board approved a $10 million grant to build a new hospital in Riverton, Cowboy State Daily reported Nov. 17.

Riverton Medical Group had purchased land, acquired grants and partnered with the Billings (M.T.) Clinic as part of its lobbying efforts for the new hospital. The $10 million in funds was made available through a $85 million given to the state for healthcare through the American Rescue Act.

The new hospital will compete with Lander-based SageWest Health Care for regional patients.

"The many hours of hard work are coming to fruition, and in a way that will have tangible results for the people of Riverton for many, many years to come," State Rep. Ember Oakley told Cowboy State Daily. "Improving the quality of health care may be the single most important effort that our town could undertake to increase our overall quality of life."
