Thanks for working here this week: Holly Hofer, RN, Oncology

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.

Introducing Holly Hofer, who works as a nurse in the Oncology Unit at the Heptner Cancer Center in Gillette, Wyoming. Holly has been with CCH for nearly two years, and earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing in August 2020. For those who don’t know, Heptner Cancer Center at Campbell County Memorial Hospital provides advanced facilities and comprehensive cancer treatment programs including Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy.

Holly pursued a career in healthcare because she wanted to help and care for people. “In high school, I did some mentorship courses and always found myself gravitating toward the healthcare professions,” she says. “I like being the person who is a source of encouragement and information for those in need. Also, I think healthcare workers are challenged and inspired by their patients, and I wanted a career that would challenge me.”

When asked who her healthcare hero is her mom, who battled cancer at the Heptner Cancer Center. “Throughout her treatments she worked full-time, kept up a household and family, and she never complained. She attended every event that she felt was safe for her to be at and she persevered through her treatments,” says Holly. “I came to her infusions at the Cancer Center and was inspired by the nurses, and that’s when I knew I wanted to be an oncology nurse.”

When she’s not working as a nurse, Holly enjoys spending time with her children. “Their activities keep me busy, but I also enjoy hiking, four-wheeling and boating. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, going on walks and reading,” she says.

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

“Many patients are anxious and scared when they come to the Cancer Center. I feel the most pride at work when those patients are laughing, smiling or completely at ease at the end of their infusion. I love our patients. They are strong, humble, encouraging and a joy to be around every day. I also love the group of nurses and healthcare staff who I spend so much time with. They are helpful, smart and wonderful people, and I love working with them and learning from them.

Excellence Every Day means that I try my hardest every day. It means that I try to improve and learn daily, and strive to be a better nurse.”

Thanks Holly for all that you do for our patients in the Heptner Cancer Center. We are proud to have you on our team.
