Wyoming doctors want to re-locate

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:16am

Wyoming doctors want to re-locate: "About one-third of Wyoming doctors are planning to relocate out of the state eventually, according to newly released data collected by the Wyoming Healthcare Commission.

Of those, more than half cited high malpractice insurance premiums as a factor.

Dr. Robert Monger, a Cheyenne rheumatologist and former president of the Wyoming Medical Society, said he was not surprised by the numbers.

'It is what I expected,' he said. 'When I've talked to doctors, a large number of them are very concerned about their malpractice rates to the point that they are considering leaving or planning on leaving the state.'"

What will happen to all their patients ? Who will care for them ?
