Wyoming Medical Center exploring Banner Health affiliation
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) – Wyoming’s largest hospital is looking into affiliation with a major regional health care organization.
Wyoming Medical Center in Casper says a nonbinding agreement with Banner Health will allow both to determine terms before deciding on affiliation.
The potential deal apparently will not mean a merger.
Nonprofit Banner Health runs nearly 30 hospitals across the West, including three in Wyoming, as well as labs, emergency rooms, clinics and surgical centers.
Affiliation would make Wyoming Medical Center the latest Wyoming hospital to partner with a larger, out-of-state provider.
Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie and Cheyenne Regional Medical Center in Cheyenne have reached agreements with Colorado-based UC Health.
