News from Wyoming Department of Health
New Administrator Named for Wyoming Life Resource Center
Adam Merrell has joined the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) as the new administrator for the Wyoming Life Resource Center (WLRC) in Lander.
Merrell has worked in skilled nursing for the past 17 years with a focus on regional oversight.
“Adam is clearly familiar with the Wyoming landscape and healthcare system and is passionate about the clients he’s served,” said Chris Newman, senior administrator of the WDH Behavioral Health Division.
Merrell grew up in Cheyenne and said he is excited to work for WLRC and to return to Wyoming with his family. “This is a welcome professional opportunity,” he said.
Merrell replaces Rich Dunkley, who served as interim superintendent since December 2013.
WLRC provides a residential program for adults with developmental disabilities and is one of five state healthcare facilities operated by WDH.
