Thanks for working here this week: Matthew Miller, MHA, Behavioral Health Services

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.

Meet Matthew Miller, who is the Operations Manager for Behavioral Health Services at Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette, Wyoming. Matthew has a Masters in Healthcare Administration (MHA) and has worked for CCH for eight months, but has worked in health care for six years. He was inspired to work in health care because it’s continuously changing and advancing, which he says provides an incredible opportunity to grow as an individual and as a team.

“Every day you are presented with an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life, and the ways in which we all can do that is endless. Even when you are working with someone who is experiencing the worst day of their life, you have an opportunity to make it just a little bit better,” says Matthew.

He calls nurse practitioner Esther Gilman-Kehrer his health care hero. “The level of care and dedication she showed each and every patient as well as fellow co-workers was unmatched. Esther is not only a well-respected provider in her field, but also to the next generation of providers by giving back and spending hours of her time educating and passing down her knowledge. The time I got to spend with Esther was invaluable, and I know that at any point in my career when I am looking for advice, Esther will always be there to listen, educate, and guide me. Esther is my healthcare hero as she is a perfect example of what healthcare should be,” he says.

When Matthew isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with his two dogs, Abe and Bella, going to the mountains, trail riding, playing sports, and spending quality time with friends and family. “In my spare time I do like to keep busy with construction projects and home renovations,” he says.

We asked Matthew what he likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence every day means to him. Check out his response:

“While I have only been with CCH for a short time I am incredibly thankful to be a part the BHS team, and a part of CCH as an organization. Knowing we make a difference in our client’s lives is incredibly rewarding. In any job there will be bad days and weeks; however, it is all worthwhile knowing that you have made a difference and you can see that difference in your clients every day.

CCH as a whole has an incredible team of leaders who are always willing to step in and assist in their area of expertise. The fact that every employee is working to achieve the ‘Excellence Every Day’ goal, and you can see the impact that has on our services is an incredible experience to be a part of. In BHS as a department we have to function together as a well-rounded team to provide the person centered care that is mental health, seeing the outcomes that our clients have when each person does their role is very rewarding.

Excellence every day is acting on the opportunity that working in health care gives you in having the ability to have a positive impact on someone’s life. Every day starts fresh, and despite what may have happened yesterday or last week, it’s coming to work and putting your best self forward to provide excellent care for our clients. It’s knowing every day you can make a difference and putting the work in to make it happen.”

Thank you, Matthew, for making a difference in our clients’ well-being. We appreciate you.
