Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family
and the Campbell County, Wyoming community to know about the good work
that they do for this organization.
Allow us to introduce Maddy Morgan, a registered nurse (RN) who works for
the Campbell County Memorial Hospital
Medical/Surgical Unit in Gillette, Wyoming. Maddy earned her associate degree in nursing from
Gillette College in 2016, and joined CCH right afterward. She’s currently working
toward her bachelor’s degree in nursing through the
University of Wyoming. For those who don’t know, Med/Surg nurses practice in a stimulating,
and demanding, setting. Many will say it’s not for the faint-hearted,
but the work is very rewarding. Nurses on this unit can care for patients
across many age levels, with a huge variety of disease categories or injuries,
and with different degrees of acuity. The must be knowledgeable about
all age groups, from infants to geriatrics, which can make working on
the unit a challenge because of the variety of the patients.
Maddy says she always knew she was supposed to have a career in healthcare,
but wasn’t exactly sure where in the beginning. “Initially,
I wanted to be an
occupational therapist or a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. I thought nursing would be
a great place to start,” says Maddy. “Now, I have learned
that I enjoy having the ability to care for others, and make people feel
better. I really love learning about the human body, as well as the critical
thinking that comes with complex medicine.”
Maddy says that one of her health care hero’s is Leslea King, RN,
who also works on the Med/Surg Unit at CCMH. “She always inspires
me to strive for excellence. She is consistently the most compassionate
person that I know,” says Maddy. “She is known to celebrate
her patients birthdays, orders patients their favorite Starbucks drink—in
trade for walking a lap in the hall, of course—and she simply goes
the extra mile with a smiling face every time she comes to work. Through
working with Leslea, I have learned that no matter how busy you are, charting
can always wait,” Maddy says.
When she’s not at work, you can find Maddy hiking, working out, riding
her bike through the Spearfish Canyon, running Spartan races, traveling,
spending time with her family and boyfriend, and eating pizza or ice cream!
She also says that she will pick up a shift for fun, too—but, we
think the other things she listed sound much more fun!
We asked Maddy what she likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence
every day means to her. Check out her response:
“I am a Gillette native, and I love being able to take care of our
rural community. I am honored to do this with an amazing team!
I love that I learn something new every day. The Med/Surg floor has provided
me opportunities to gain insight about healthcare and broaden my horizon,
and I am so thankful that I started in this department right after college!
I get the privilege to take care of pediatric patients, hospice patients,
surgical patients, geriatric patients, and literally everything in between!
Excellence every day means always trying your best, being dedicated, and
striving to make Campbell County Health the No. 1 choice in Wyoming.”
Thank you, Maddy, for putting our patients’ needs first. We are proud
to have you on our team.
