Perhaps due to Wyoming being the only state without a skilled nursing facility for veterans, but it appears that the timeline for Buffalo’s veterans’ care project at Fort McKinney is being expedited.

Buffalo City Councilman Travis Lawrence serves as the local liaison to the state departments overseeing the project and confirmed that the timeline has been moved forward…

Even so, construction is expected to take at least 18 months so the opening of the facility will most likely be August of 2022 at the earliest.

Lawrence told Big Horn Mountain Radio that Commissioner Bill Novotny and local VA Administrator Bruce Ellison are both involved in the planning process at the state level.
