CEO Receives Grassroots Champion Award

CEO Receives Grassroots Champion Award

Campbell County Health CEO Andy Fitzgerald has received the 2019 Grassroots Champion Award from the American Hospital Association (AHA), recognizing hospital leaders who most effectively educate elected officials on how major issues affect a hospital’s vital role in the community and tirelessly advocates for hospitals and their patients. The AHA gives this award to one person from each state, and the recipient is selected by the Wyoming Hospital Association.

Some of the factors for Andy’s selection include suggesting alternative funding models to the Wyoming congressional delegation to help protect and promote rural healthcare, and taking a strong stance on issues surrounding long-term care and the federal survey process.

Andy has been with CCH since January 2005. He was named the CEO in January 2013. Andy has more than 30 years of healthcare finance and administration experience, and has worked in large metropolitan hospitals with Humana in Dallas, Texas, Phoenix, Arizona, and Denver, Colorado, as well as rural, sole-community hospitals in Wyoming, Idaho and Oregon. Andy is a member of the Gillette Chamber Singers, a veteran of the U.S. Army, an avid fly fisherman and most importantly, a husband of 40 years and father of four children.
