              Governor Mead hires Health Care Policy Advisor

CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Matt Mead has hired Elizabeth Hoy as his Health Care Policy Advisor. Hoy has over 25 years of health care experience. Her background includes aspects of the health care field from private industry to health insurance and includes consultation with providers.

“The health of Wyoming people is very important to me,” Governor Mead said. “So are the costs associated with providing health care. We have to get health care issues under control for the good of citizens, for the solvency of government and to keep costs reasonable for small businesses. I am confident that Elizabeth has the expertise to help me make headway on a myriad of health care issues.”

Much of Hoy’s career has focused on health care delivery system development, quality improvement and patient safety. She looks forward to bringing this expertise to Wyoming and she is excited to serve the people of Wyoming. “We are developing a framework for evaluating health care services in the state that balances the overall health of Wyoming's population, outcomes of care for individual patients, and cost -- this will enable us to work toward getting the greatest value in coverage and quality of care for our health care dollars.”
Hoy joins Dr. Brent Sherard, also a Health Policy Advisor on the Governor's staff.
