GALI students learn more about health care

Gillette Area Leadership Institute (GALI) students spent the morning of January 18 with Campbell County Health learning about key leadership tactics—such as conflict management, trust, consensus building, mediation, and facilitation—and how CCH uses these in everyday business. Topics discussed included physician relationships, communication, planning, and succession planning.

The students toured the mock patient rooms that are nearing the final planning stages and will eventually move the Medical/Surgical Unit and the Intensive Care Unit rooms from the fourth floor of Campbell County Memorial Hospital to the second floor, adjacent to the current Maternal Child department. The CCMH inpatient room redesign will increase room size for all inpatient rooms and improve workflow for the providers which ultimately will improve patient outcomes. The patient room project is projected to be complete in 2020. You can learn more about it at www.cchwyo.org/ptrooms.

For those who don't know, GALI is a nine-month program designed to promote a better understanding of the community, build and enhance leadership skills, and develop a strong network of community leaders. Developed by the Campbell County Chamber of Commerce, participants take daily trips each month to learn more about all facets of the community, as well as head to the legislature to learn more about the legislative process, meet with legislators and tour the Wyoming National Guard in Guernsey. The program begins in September and will complete in June with a graduation ceremony. Learn more about the program at www.gillettechamber.com.
