307-688-1551

Campbell County Health is a healthcare institution, whose primary focus is to provide healthcare to the citizens of Campbell County and surrounding areas. The Hospital has established policies and procedures to safeguard the healthcare provision, protect individual and institutional rights and property, and ensure the safety of all members of the healthcare. Campbell County Health reserves the right to regulate time, place, and manner to ensure that the institutional mission and daily functions are not compromised.

Procedure:

Campbell County Health is a proponent of “Freedom of Speech”, and encourages dialogue and differences of opinions and views. The following guidelines must be adhered to for a demonstration to occur on the Hospital campus.

  1. LOCATION: The Memorial Garden is the recommended venue for demonstrations and protests. The use of this venue or other venues may be reserved through Chief Executive Officer of the Hospital. This space is made available to the community on a first-come, first-serve basis. The space is selected because it is a prominent space on the Hospital campus, but does not interfere with patient care.
  2. APPROVAL PROCEDURES: A. Timeline. Representatives of the sponsoring organization wishing to stage a demonstration will complete a CCH Application Form for Demonstrations, Rallies or Picketing at least two (2) business days before the event. (Forms are located with Hospital Administration and can be downloaded here).
  3. EXPECTATIONS OF SPONSORING ORGANIZATION: The sponsoring organization is responsible for the behavior of the organization’s members, guests from off Hospital campus, and for any financial expenses that may be incurred as a result of the event. The sponsoring organization must have a representative present at the event throughout the event’s duration. The organization must inform its members and guests of the Hospital’s expectations and consequences for failure to adhere to these expectations.
  4. SAFETY INVOLVEMENT: Law enforcement and Hospital security personnel may be present at the event to ensure that the organizers’ rights are being protected. Therefore, organizers must include Campbell County Health in the initial planning stages so that potential security problems are identified and solutions are recommended. When warranted, dedicated Safety or Police personnel may be required to be present at the event to serve as a deterrent and provide immediate response to an emergency, i.e., attendance, publicity, controversy, and/or high profile/V.I.P. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the event, supplemental security may result in costs to the organizer. If notification is less than three (3) business days, then a greater cost for security may be incurred.
  5. Behavior that disrupts the normal functions of the Hospital, threats to persons or property, the blocking of any hospital entrance from public access, and physical or verbal violence will not be tolerated. Event sponsors will be held accountable for any such behavior. Events may not be advertised on Hospital property.
