Thanks for working here Thursday: DeEtte Eby, MA, Heptner Cancer Center

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 us to introduce DeEtte Eby, MA, who works in the Medical Oncology department of the CCH Heptner Cancer Center—she’s been with CCH for 11 years but been inpatient care for 16 years. For those who don’t know, Medical Oncology uses chemotherapy, biotherapy, and targeted therapies to treat a variety of cancers. DeEtte is an Office Coordinator and Medical Assistant (MA) at the Center. She is a long-time resident of Gillette, graduating from Campbell County High School. In fact, DeEtte worked as a CNA in high school, which helped inspire her to continue to work in healthcare because she loved interacting with residents—she is currently working on her national Medical Assistant Certificate.

Two of DeEtte’s health care heroes are two of her colleagues: Stacey Hastreiter, APRN, and Dr. Pauline Lerma. “They are a wonderful source of information!,” she says. “I am very fortunate to work with an amazing group of professionals, from the front office staff to the nurses and doctors. Being able to interact with the team makes patient care my favorite part of the day.”

When she’s not working, DeEtte loves to spend time with her family—she’s been married 23 years and has two wonderful boys, Dustin, 20, and Brady, 18. “I like to travel, play games with family and friends, do crafts, golf, and spend time with my family,” she says.

We asked DeEtte what she likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence every day means to her. Check out her response:

“I take pride in myself being a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and being a team member within an AMAZING department at CCH. Showing kindness to strangers to helping those in need makes loving life easy. I am truly blessed to work with people that have cancer. It has taught me to share my strengths and build on my weakness. To be part of the Cancer Center family means everything to me. I am very lucky to have such a caring group of patients and co-workers in my life.

Excellence every day for me means to do my very best every day. That starts with picking up trash on the grounds at CCH to supporting a family that is in need of a hug, information, or needs to talk. It means listening to my co-workers and supporting their ideas and projects. It’s communication, problem-solving, and getting involved on a committee within our organization. I am one of the many faces at CCH and I want the community of Campbell County, Wyoming to know what a great facility we have and all it has to offer. Let us be your first choice.”

Thank you, DeEtte for your compassion toward our patients, and for being such a wonderful support system for your team. We appreciate you!
