Why I am Running
I have witnessed over the last six years failures from the board leadership of Campbell County Health, both while living in Casper Wy and from living in Gillette Wyoming. I feel I can offer some seasoned leadership to this board that can help them through the difficult times ahead. This hospital cannot sustain another year of $25,000,000 million loss
Top 3 Priorities
1.CCH hospital has had a very poor reputation in regard to the billing process, this needs to be fixed, and it can't wait until the new medical record program comes online in a year.
2.The hospital is fairly good a recruiting doctors, but the hospital is very poor at retaining doctors. From the first day of a doctor working in the hospital or the community, the hospital and the board need to be working on retaining that doctor.
3. This hospital has a bad reputation of not being transparent to the community on decisions they are making, sometimes the community only finds out after a big change has been done, and no input from the community is sought out. This can be changed by inviting more community members into the tent for discussions.
