Welcome Shannon Sorensen

Welcome Shannon Sorensen

Shannon Sorensen is the new Rehabilitation Manager at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center.

She comes to Gillette from Ainsworth, Nebraska, where she was the Rehabilitation Manager and then served as CEO of Brown County Hospital, a critical access hospital in a community of 1,600. Shannon participated in the Chadron State Rural Health Program and graduated from the University Nebraska Medical Center with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2006. She completed her Master’s degree in Healthcare Administration in 2017.

Shannon is excited to use her hands-on physical therapy knowledge along with her operations expertise in tandem with the healthcare resources and services that Campbell County Health and Gillette have to offer, and will be responsible for all resident rehab activities at The Legacy, including Short Term Rehabilitation. She is looking forward to continuing her passion of advocating for rural healthcare in a larger community and developing her skills in the long term care setting.

The Sorensen’s have relatives in Montana and Colorado and wanted to move further west. Shannon and her husband Eric have two boys ages 7 and 10, Tatum and Payton, who are active in basketball, baseball and football. Eric has landscaping and outfitting businesses and will be developing them as the family settles into the local community.

Join us as we welcome Shannon and her family to Gillette!
