Wyoming Life Resource Center
Lander, Wyoming

The Wyoming Life Resource Center in Lander serves those with developmental disabilities and those with dual diagnoses of psychiatric and developmental disabilities. In the context of the overall state healthcare system, this facility is envisioned as a transitional step toward reintegration into local communities for those being discharged from the State Hospital.

Much of the existing campus will be replaced with new buildings including ten, 10-bed cottages, yielding a total of 100 beds, day program buildings, a medical clinic, and a recreation and therapy building. Using the Green House model as the basis of design, the cottages provide small groups of residents and staff that focus on living communally in a residential environment. Five cottages are designed as skilled nursing units for medically frail clients, two cottages are designed as intermediate care facilities for dual diagnoses clients, and three cottages designed as skilled nursing facilities for clients with brain injuries, dementia, or psychiatric illness.

Construction is expected to be complete in the Spring of 2020.
