Thanks for working here Thursday: Amanda Walter, RN, CCH Home Health and Hospice

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 Amanda Walter, RN, who works for CCH Home Health and Hospice in Gillette, Wyoming. Amanda is currently enrolled in a nursing master’s program and has been in health care for 17 years—14 of those years have been with CCH. Hospice, by definition, is a team-oriented approach to providing specialized care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury. It includes expert medical care, pain management and emotional support for patients and their families.

“I always knew that I wanted to help people,” she says. “I thought being a nurse was the best way I could do that. It was not until my grandfather passed away in the CCH Hospice House that I knew I wanted to work in the Hospice field, as I was inspired by the end-of-life care he received.”

Amanda calls her healthcare hero her grandmother. “She was a nurse who also raised five children and was a devoted wife for 60 years,” she says.

When she’s not working, Amanda loves spending time with her children, who are 8 years old and 16 years old, and her husband of 11 years. “We love camping, hunting, and just being outdoors,” she says.

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

“I love working in a department with people full of compassion for the jobs they do. We are a great team together. I have always received great care and support from my co-workers.

Excellence every day to me means that you give your best of yourself every day. That you give caring, competent, and compassionate care every day.”

Thanks, Amanda, for providing such great care to our patients at Home Health and Hospice. We are proud to have you on our team.
