CCH November 2017 Department Discovery: Accounting

CCH November 2017 Department Discovery: Accounting

The Campbell County Health November 2017 Department Discovery shines a light on the Campbell County Health Accounting Department, located in Campbell County Memorial Hospital.

The Accounting department is responsible for accounts payable, budgets, fixed asset tracking, monthly financials, payroll, and statistics throughout the health system. This team also produces annual W-2’s for all of CCH’s employees and 1099’s for the vendors, as well as work with external auditors and consultants every year for a required annual audit and the coordination of the Medicare Cost Report.

“In simple terms, Accounting successfully reports the financial activities for the organization so that leadership is able to make strategic decisions for the success of the system, which benefits patients by us being able to offer the many specialty clinics we have at this time,” says Controller Heather Stucker.

Staff consists of three accounts payable members, one payroll member, two accountants and one controller. This seven-person team is responsible for the majority of Campbell County Health, including CCMH, Home Health and Hospice, Home Medical Resources, nearly 20 clinics, Powder River Surgery Center, Rehabilitation Services, and The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center, and everything in between. “We take all of the different parts of the health system and pull the financial and statistical data together in 10 days (or less) every month in order to present complete financial statements to executive leadership and the Board of Trustees,” says Heather.

One item the team is excited to participate in this year is moving all of the Campbell County Medical Group clinics onto the same Electronic Medical Record as CCMH—Meditech.

“This project will have direct and substantial impact to our processes, as it relates to not only the clinics but how we pull everything together each month. It is a challenging implementation but one that we hope will be well worth it once completed,” says Heather. “When that project goes live, we will be looking forward to focusing our attentions on being able to provide managers with better system training, reports and the tools they need to successfully manage their departments.”

Heather says that the best thing about working in the department is being able to work with all of the managers, and help them understand the financial flow within their departments so they are be able to do their jobs well.

“We have an amazing team—every one of us strives for excellence every day and to provide our customers with the best customer support possible. We are proud of what we do and appreciate being able to contribute to CCH.”

A big round of applause to the Accounting team! Thank you for supporting patient care departments throughout the health system.
