While Campbell County Health appreciates our emergency nurses year round,
we wanted to take a special moment during Emergency Nurses Week on October
6-12 to recognize our nurses for making a difference. In fact today, October
9, is Emergency Nurses Day!
CCH has more 35 Registered Nurses (RNs) in the Campbell County Memorial Hospital
Emergency Department (ED) who are certified in four emergency areas.
ED by the numbers in 2019:
- Total Patients: 16,347*
- Total Pediatrics patients (13 years old and under): 2,207
- Total Traumas (everything from a cut finger to a severe head injury): 3,390
- Pediatric Trauma: 640
Emergency Nurses save lives. Please help us thank your colleagues and neighbors
for their commitment to care.

pain, chest pain and more.
