Thanks for working here Thursday: Douglas Evert, Pharmacy

Thanks for working here Thursday: Douglas Evert, Pharmacy

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.

Say hello to Dr. Douglas Evert, Pharm. D, who works in the Campbell County Memorial Hospital Pharmacy. Doug received an Associate of Science (Pre-Pharmacy) from Casper College and went on to earn his Pharmacy Doctorate from the University of Wyoming. He’s worked for CCH for eight years. While the Pharmacy at CCMH isn't a retail pharmacy, which means that the public cannot have them fill their prescriptions like you would at other pharmacies around town, the department is responsible for helping with medications prescribed for patients while they are in the hospital. The CCMH Pharmacy is also the only dispensary that provides home IV therapy that’s ordered by a provider and mixes all of the chemotherapy drugs for the patients at the Heptner Cancer Center. “Each day brings different challenges and I am given the opportunity to interact with and help my fellow co-workers throughout the hospital heal the sick and injured people that enter our facility,” says Doug. We asked Doug why he chose a career in healthcare, and what excellence every day means to him. Check out his response:

“I became interesting in working in healthcare while three classes short of graduating with a degree in Manufacturing Engineering. My wife Collie, who had left nursing school to allow me to finish my engineering degree, convinced me in my last semester of engineering school to switch majors to become a pharmacist. I applied to become a pharmacy technician at every pharmacy in Idaho Falls, Idaho and I was hired at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center without any healthcare experience. I had only ever worked construction and grew up on a farm. It was a big jump, and not one that I have ever regretted.

To me, excellence every day means maintaining a positive and respectful attitude toward everyone despite the varying situations and circumstances that may occur throughout the workday.”

Doug, thank you for making a difference in the lives of our patients; we are proud to have you on our team.
