Thanks for working here Thursday: Angela Murphy, CPhT, CCMH Pharmacy

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.

Say hello to Angie Murphy, a Nationally Certified Pharmacy Technician who works in the Campbell County Memorial Hospital Pharmacy. Angie’s been in health care for the past 35 years; and 15 of them have been right here in Gillette, Wyoming with CCH—she briefly moved to Texas and then returned! Angie attended college at University of Texas and East Texas State University. For those who don’t know, the CCMH Pharmacy isn't a retail pharmacy, instead it’s responsible for helping with medications prescribed for patients while they are in the hospital. The CCMH Pharmacy is also the only dispensary that provides home IV therapy that's ordered by a provider and mixes all of the chemotherapy drugs for the patients at the Heptner Cancer Center.

Angie was inspired to work in healthcare because she had a desire to help others, and was fascinated by medicine. “My first Pharmacy director was a World War II veteran and I learned a lot from him—he was awesome!” she says.

When talking about her health care hero, Angie reflected upon two women at CCH who have impacted her in very positive ways. “First Donna McMahill an Oncology nurse. She has such a good attitude and knowledge of the field of oncology—and that continues to impress me. She is compassionate to all her patients and even myself I have confided in her for guidance spiritually and professionally. I don’t think that she’s aware of how much I appreciate her," says Angie. "Same goes for Heidie Jasiak, PharmD, who I work with in the Pharmacy. I’ve seen her grow as a college intern, to doing her rotations and even helped train her in the IV lab—and now all the knowledge she has involving the operations of the pharmacy, IT issues, being a mom, friend, and co-worker. She just amazes me! I’m proud to have her as my friend."

Outside of work, Angie loves spending time with her family. “We have family get-togethers, cooking, camping, fishing, thirsty Thursdays! Spending time with my grand babies and last but not least rec volleyball representing CCMH (in the past) and Becks Baby Boomers with several championships,” she says.

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

“I love that I have the opportunity to work with such amazing co-workers, and knowing so many different people from different departments and being able to call them all my friends. We have state-of-the-art pharmacy equipment—thanks to our Director Robert Quintana—for such a small and rural hospital.

Excellence every day is doing the best job possible while being outstanding and delivering quality care all the time—plus seeing all my people smile and leaving satisfied!”

Thank you, Angie, for your wonderful attitude at the Pharmacy. We are honored to have you on our team!
