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.
Meet Carolyn Telkamp, an Accountant in the
Accounting Department at
Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette, Wyoming. For those who don’t know, the Accounting department
is responsible for accounts payable, budgets, fixed asset tracking, monthly
financials, payroll, and statistics throughout the health system. Carolyn
has worked for CCH for nearly three years, but has been working in accounting
and payroll for almost 30! She earned a bachelor’s degree in math
and has taken many other business-related courses. Carolyn even spent
one summer as an aide in a nursing home caring for residents.
Carolyn’s family has been very involved in health care for many years,
so it’s no surprise to find her working in the field as well.
“My father is my health care hero; he was a family practitioner for
more than 40 years. I still remember his little black bag and him making
house calls to those patients that could not come in to his office and
the long hours he worked to make sure everyone that needed help got it.
He firmly believed that you treat the whole person and spent time listening
to everything going on in their life when they came to see him,” she says.
When Carolyn is not at work, she enjoys spending as much time with her
family—especially her two grandchildren—as well as camping
We asked Carolyn what she likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence
every day means to her. Check out her response:
“I enjoy working in the accounting department with a great group
of people who make customer service their highest priority every day and
have fun doing it. I take pride in knowing that I am giving my best every
day and trying to learn something new each day.
Excellence Every Day means to me showing up ready to work with a smile
on your face, giving your best effort every day and assisting anyone who
may need your help.”
Thank you, Carolyn, for giving your best each day. We appreciate you!
