(Wyo)-Casper Hospital Exploring Affiliation With Banner Health

By: John Axtell Posted at: 02/01/2020 05:50 PM
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) -  Wyoming's largest hospital is looking into affiliation with Banner Health, a major regional health care organization.

      Wyoming Medical Center in Casper says a nonbinding agreement with Banner  will allow both to agree on terms before deciding on affiliation. The potential deal apparently will not mean a merger.

      Nonprofit Banner Health runs nearly 30 hospitals across the West, with Torrington among 3 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.
