CCMH Partners with CaringBridge to Enhance Patient/Family Centered Care
GILLETTE, WY - Campbell County Health has partnered with CaringBridge, a charitable nonprofit organization providing free websites that connect families and friends during a serious health event, care and recovery. A CaringBridge website gives patients and caregivers a place to provide health updates, post photos and receive messages of hope and encouragement in a guestbook.
Partnering with CaringBridge adds an important benefit to our patient and family support system," said Deb Tonn, Vice President of Patient Care Services. "We strive to provide the best resources and information for patients and their families, and CaringBridge fits perfectly with that mission."
Since the founding of CaringBridge in 1997, more than 207,000 CaringBridge sites have been created which generate over half-a-million visits each day. The CaringBridge community includes authors, visitors and donors in all 50 states and more than 225 countries and territories. The free service is funded by individual donations and hospital and collaborative partnerships.
"Patients and their families greatly benefit from the ease of communication that CaringBridge provides," said Sona Mehring, founder and executive director, CaringBridge. "Instead of spending time making phone calls and sending e-mails to keep everyone updated, their energy can be focused on caring for the patient."
