Winter 2017 CEO Update

Winter 2017 CEO Update

Greetings! I hope the new year is finding you in good health. 2017 brings many new faces to our physician group, which will enhance the services we offer to our community. Over the last several months we’ve been busy recruiting an exceptionally skilled group of emergency medicine physicians. We’ve always been able to provide strong emergency services to our community, and we are pleased that these new physicians will help us continue to do so.

In our Winter 2017 Health Matters Newsletter, you’ll read more about our new physiatrist, Dr. Linda Walby, and two new advanced practice professionals joining our behavioral health team. We’re thrilled to be able to offer more appointments and expanded care to patients needing mental health services.

We are excited to announce a new medical oncologist who will be joining the Heptner Cancer Center. Dr. Keith Mills is retiring on April 1, and Dr. Pauline Lerma will be taking over for him without a gap in services. She comes to us with strong experience at a major cancer treatment center in New Jersey. We are hopeful that her husband, who is a pulmonologist, will join the medical staff as well.

Patients will appreciate our newly remodeled Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation space, which should open in March. The new area has grown from 645 sq. ft. to over 4,000, allowing us to accommodate larger rehab classes and take better care of our cardiac and pulmonary patients into the future. Please join us on March 9 from 4 - 6 pm for our Open House celebration.

I want to reassure you that while the future of healthcare reform may be uncertain, Campbell County Health will continue to take care of our community—no matter what is decided in Washington, D.C.

Our fundamental responsibility is to provide accessible, quality healthcare to the people of Gillette, Wright and surrounding areas. We commit to carrying the mantle of leadership as your primary healthcare provider. We promise to strive to be relentless and innovative in our search for ways to provide high quality, efficient care for you, our valued patients. We always want to hear your opinions and ideas on how we can better serve you, and will be asking you to participate in our upcoming public perception survey this spring.

Sincerely,

Andy Fitzgerald, CEO
