There is a big medical merger in the works in Casper. The Wyoming Medical Center has announced it will be purchasing Mountain View Regional Hospital.

“At Wyoming Medical Center and Mountain View Regional Hospital, we are dedicated to ensure the highest quality and exceptional patient and family experience possible for everyone who walks through our doors,” says Michele Chulick, the President and CEO of Wyoming Medical Center. “We are very excited about the additional services and presence that we will be able to offer through this acquisition."

According to the press release,  "Wyoming Medical Center (“WMC”) has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire MountainView Regional Hospital (“MVRH”), a 23-bed physician partnered surgical hospital in Casper, Wyoming, from affiliates of Irving Place Capital and MVRH’s physician partners. MVRH was previously a subsidiary of National Surgical Healthcare (“NSH”), which was formerly a portfoliocompany of Irving Place Capital."

The transition will happen quickly, with MVRH expected to begin operating as part of WMC during the first half of 2018. MVRH currently offers a variety of medical services, including inpatient and outpatient surgery, with a specialty in neurosurgery, as well as on-site imaging and musculoskeletal physician services across the state of Wyoming.

WMC says it will have no further comments until the deal is signed.
