Thanks for working here Thursday: Katie Rohan, RN, CCMH Medical / Surgical Unit

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.

Allow me to introduce Katie Rohan, RN, who works in the Campbell County Memorial Hospital Medical/Surgical Unit. Katie graduated with an associate’s degree in nursing from Northeast Community College in Norfolk, Nebraska, and has worked for CCH for nearly five years. Katie’s first gig in healthcare was as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) at a long-term care facility her hometown of Emerson, Nebraska. Katie worked there while obtaining her LPN and RN, and only left when her and her family moved to Gillette.

Katie says her grandmother was her inspiration for going into nursing. “She raised 13 children on her own and went to nursing school after my grandfather passed away. Out of the whole family, I was the only one to go into healthcare, so it’s a special bond we share,” says Katie. Katie also says that her health care heroes are all of her coworkers who inspire her daily with their dedication and pride that they have while taking care of the patients on the floor. “One person who I have truly learned a lot from and admire is Deb McMurtrey, I hope to be half the nurse she is!” says Katie.

Outside of work, Katie and her husband, Will, enjoy camping, hiking and going back home to Nebraska to see their family and friends. We asked Katie what she likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence every day means to her. Check out her response:

“Working on Med/Surg we see a wide variety of patients each day, and you never know what challenges are headed your way. There’s always something new to learn, and I really enjoy that. My co workers and the teamwork they show to help each other out when things get hectic is another reason I like working on med/surg, we ban together to make sure our patients get the best care.

Excellence every day means that I’m coming to work each day and providing the best care I can to my patients. And, knowing when I leave at the end of my shift they received the utmost care from me.”

Thank you Katie for taking such great care of our patients on the Med/Surg floor. We appreciate you!
