Thanks for working here this week: Kayla Allguer, RN, 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.

Say hello to Kayla Allguer, RN, who works on the inpatient unit for Behavioral Health Services at Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette, Wyoming. Kayla has worked for CCH since June 2020; she worked at the Yes House before that. The BHS inpatient unit is for patients 13 years old and above who may be experiencing severe episodes of mental illness and need temporary monitored care.

Kayla says that it took her awhile to fully commit healthcare for a profession. “I spent some time in the hospital in Cheyenne, and encountered some really great nurses—that is when I got my first spark of interest for nursing. When I moved back to Gillette, I was talking to a friend about goals for the future and they encouraged me to apply for the nursing program. After my acceptance, I started looking into different possibilities of areas I would be most interested in, and that is when mental health stuck out to me,” she says.

When she’s not working, Kayla says that she enjoys spending time with her family and, “Making them laugh with my hilarious 'mom jokes'! I enjoy going on any adventure I can just to gain more life experiences. Also, now that the weather is nice, I highly enjoy a good ol’ fashioned grill-out!”. Did someone say s’mores?

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

“I enjoy working in my department because it allows insight to just how diverse the human mind is from one another. Being part of such a potentially pivotal moment in a person's life is really meaningful; especially when I get to be a witness to somebody making truly positive changes so they can grow toward a healthier and happier life.

To me, excellence every day is ensuring that I am being caring, respectful, and keeping everybody safe each shift. I want to ensure the patients feel like a human being and not just a number coming through the hospital doors.”

Thank you, Kayla, for taking such great care of our BHS patients. We are proud to have you on our team.
