CCMH Inpatient Room

Replacement Project

CCMH inpatient room redesignIf you’ve stayed with Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette, Wyoming for medical surgical, ICU or OB care, you likely know why this remodel is terribly needed. The current rooms were not built with the needs of today’s care practices in mind. They are small, awkward, and limited when it comes to accommodating equipment, providers and families. The new patient rooms will create a functionally effective work space and flow, and will serve us well for the next 40 to 50 years.

Financial projections show the project can be funded with existing cash and revenue, though other options are being discussed, such as bond financing. No final decisions have been made yet. The project will take at least 20 months to complete after construction starts, and the Board of Trustees must still decide if the project should be built in two years, or stretch out to four years.

The Problems

  • Current rooms are too small to accommodate modern equipment and family members who want to visit or spend the night
  • Bathrooms are too small and don't have a sink inside the bathroom
  • Maternal child rooms didn’t really work for how babies are delivered and cared for now—mom stays in the same room through her entire say
  • The location of supplies and nursing stations are inefficient and prevents nurses from spending more time at the bedside

June 19, 2019: Close to the finish line

Though still a work in progress, construction on the new Campbell County Memorial Hospital Maternal Child Unit is fast approaching the finish line. Located above the Main Lobby on the east end of CCMH, the unit will have three exam rooms, one minor procedure room and eight Labor/Delivery/Recovery/Postpartum rooms (called LDRPs). This is significant because CCMH has never had this type of room for moms and babies before, which are now common in many healthcare facilities. Moms currently deliver their babies in a labor room and then are moved to a postpartum room on a different wing. Read more
