New Members Join the Board of Trustees
Employees who tune in to the monthly broadcasts of the
CCMH Board of Trustees will see two new faces at the next meeting on December 13. Randy Hite
and Mike Dugan were elected to the Board November 6, and took their oath
of office on November 14, along with incumbent Trustee Joe Hallock, who
Randy Hite is a Physical Therapist and a partner in Gillette Physical
Therapy. He hopes to bring his healthcare background and experience in
managing a successful healthcare business to the Board. He worked at CCMH
for eight years before joining Gillette Physical Therapy, and feels he
has a vested interest in the reputation of the hospital.
"I want to bring back customer satisfaction and employee morale,"
said Randy. "As healthcare professionals, we are there for the customer,
not for ourselves. Sometimes it takes a lot for employees to always bring
the best for the customer, but that's we what signed up for."
Mike Dugan is a loan officer at First National Bank of Gillette. He is
excited about the opportunity to serve, and can't wait to experience
his first Board meeting.
"I'm ready to dive right in," said Mike. "I believe
that there can be some great times for the hospital going forward in the
next handful of years."
When asked about the strategic direction for CCMH, both Hite and Dugan
emphasized the importance of listening to employees and the medical staff.
"I was one of them (a CCMH employee)," said Randy. "I believe
employees need a voice in such a big organization."
"Everyone should have input," said Mike. "We need to make
sure we take care of what we have."
Relationships within the Board are also important to the two new members.
"There can be seven different ideas, all pros and cons," said
Mike. "We need to be able to find a middle ground, shake hands at
the end of the day and go back to work the next day."
"It's seven collective people on the Board," said Randy.
"But when a decision is made they're not individuals."
