RIVERTON — After a year of diligent work on preparations for building a new full-service hospital, leaders of the Riverton Medical District say a key provision in the effort will be ensuring that the hospital is owned locally and controlled locally.

“We have a chance to change the trajectory of our community,” said Corte McGuffey of the hospital district leadership group in a community meeting Tuesday at Riverton Middle School.
