CCH Vice President Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

GILLETTE, WY – Jonni Belden, Vice President of Continuing Health Services at Campbell County Health (CCH), recently received the Daniel J. Lex Award for Lifetime Service in Long-Term Care from LeadingAge Wyoming, an organization that provides advocacy and representation for non-profit nursing homes in the Cowboy State.

Jonni has been employed by CCH since 1990, and has been the administrator of The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center since 2012.

“Receiving this award is the most fitting for Jonni because she radiates compassion, advocacy and dedication to her staff and the residents of The Legacy,” said Colleen Heeter, CEO of Campbell County Health. “Through her relentless acts of leadership, Jonni inspires and motivates her staff to deliver Excellence Every Day to each and every one of The Legacy residents. The COVID-19 pandemic has been extremely strenuous and difficult for our community, residents and employees, and Jonni and her staff have worked tirelessly to keep our residents safe.”

The Daniel J. Lex Award honors one outstanding professional each year who has dedicated their career to providing high quality long-term care.

The award was named for Daniel J. Lex, the first Executive Director of the Quality Health Care Foundation of Wyoming, now called LeadingAge. Dan dedicated more than 20 years of his professional career to the ideal of ensuring high-quality care for the state’s elderly, and helped the organization grow from a small startup to the predominant nursing home organization in Wyoming.
