The second and final public forum on the pending deal to sell Wyoming Medical Center to hospital system giant Banner Health will be held Tuesday evening at the county courthouse.
The forum will begin at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at 200 N. Center St.
The deal, worth $200 million between payments and absorption of debt, was announced earlier this year after a yearlong, public search by WMC for a partner. The deal has not been finalized; WMC's land and physical assets are owned by the county, and selling them requires a vote by the Natrona County Commission. A second vote also is needed by the hospital's independent governing board.
If approved — and there has yet to be an announced timeline for when that could happen — the agreement would see the county receive $120 million from Banner. Roughly $37 million would go the hospital's reinforced foundation, while Banner would assume $50 million in debt. WMC would retain its name but would eventually incorporate the Banner identity into its branding.
