Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family
and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they
do for this organization.
Allow us to introduce Chris Buxton, CCH
Volunteer Services Coordinator in the Community Relations Department. Chris came to CCH a
little under a year ago because she was looking for a meaningful way to
fill a need in her community. Chris may be new to healthcare, but she
is certainly no stranger to working with children. She has a childcare
certification, and worked various clerical and assistant coordinator positions at the
Campbell County School District, where some of you may recognize her from.
At Campbell County Health, there are more than 340 adult and youth volunteers,
and Chris is responsible for all of these folks. Chris also helps arrange
health care mentorships and internships for Campbell County high school
students. Just so you know, from April 2016 to March 2017, adult and junior
volunteers gave more than 13,000 hours of their valuable time to help
the patients, residents and employees of CCH. CCH greatly
appreciates the work our volunteers do throughout the organization.
Chris’ health care hero is a close friend and registered nurse who
works on the Cottonwood Neighborhood at
The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center. “Pam is very committed to her people and the care they are given.
I am amazed at how a person can put the needs of their residents above
all else; I see this on the front lines of all the departments at CCH
and behind the scenes with support staff.”
For fun, Chris enjoys painting and distress furniture, yard work, interior
design and listening to music. She also enjoys spoiling her grandchildren
when they are in town. We asked Chris what she likes most about working
at CCH, and what excellence every day means to her. Check out her response:
“I like the people the most—the volunteers who contribute so
much; the students excited about learning; the dedication of all of CCH’s
staff and my supportive and knowledgeable coworkers. One of the best experiences
I have had at CCH was in November when more than 150 volunteers came out to
help the residents move from Pioneer Manor to The Legacy. The support and willingness of the volunteers
on a daily basis is quite amazing.
Excellence every day means that I’m striving to do the best that
I can for those who I come in contact with.”
Chris, thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to our volunteers.
We are proud to have you on our team.
Did you know that April 23-29 is National Healthcare Volunteer Week? President
Richard Nixon established this week in 1974 as a way to recognize and
celebrate the efforts of volunteers and foster a culture of service. Our
volunteers enhance the care we provide for our patients and residents
in many ways. Whether they give their time for special projects during
the year or volunteer several times per week, we truly appreciate their
contributions to their community. There are many volunteer opportunities
available, such as clerical support, administrative assistance, pastoral care/chaplains, childcare, hospital
Gift Shoppe sales, The Legacy Country Store sales,
hospice, Information Desk/Welcome Desk, music in the lobby, and the summer
Junior Volunteer Program. Hours are flexible to meet the needs of the volunteer. If you have time
to you’d like to give, call Chris at 307.688.1536. Visit
