CCH June 2018 Volunteer Spotlight: Wayne Laddusaw

Meet Wayne Laddusaw, a valuable volunteer with Campbell County Health in Gillette, Wyoming.

Since 2006, Wayne has volunteered over 1,300 hours at CCH. He works as an Associate Chaplain, leading communion at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center twice a month.

Besides communion, Wayne provides spiritual support to patients, residents and families at CCH. After completing his scheduled duties he always checks in at the nursing stations to ensure that he is available to all residents during his visits at The Legacy. He estimates that he spends about two to three hours each time he volunteers.

Wayne also volunteers his services to help The Legacy staff get through their tough days. “Employees need just as much attention as the residents,” says Wayne about providing spiritual support and care to staff members.

His devotion to his volunteer work is recognized by all he encounters.

“It is an honor to work alongside Wayne in Chaplain Services at CCH. He is incredibly faithful to the work we do at The Legacy and his love for the residents, employees and families of The Legacy is truly inspiring. I am honored to call his a fellow Chaplin and a friend here at CCH,” says Donny Edwards, the Chaplain Coordinator at CCH.

Before volunteering at CCH, Wayne was a volunteer for the International Pilots for Christ—Wyoming Chapter, a non-denominational organization that is dedicated to the promotion of the Gospel through mercy and compassion flights. Wayne served as the Mission Coordinator in Gillette, helping relocate patients and family members in need of emergency transportation. He also previously volunteered as an emergency medical technician for the CCH Emergency Medical Services.

In his downtime, Wayne enjoys connecting with his large family. He has three children, 10 grandkids and six great-grandkids. This summer, Wayne will be cooking outdoors—enjoying both the weather and his beautiful yard.

Wayne embodies the spirit of volunteerism—giving his time for the opportunity to help others. Thank you, Wayne, for your continued dedication to serving residents, employees, and families at The Legacy.
