Hospice Wing Closes in Close to Home

GILLETTE, WY – The CCH Board of Trustees met today at their monthly Board meeting and Fall Retreat, taking the following action with regard to the Close to Home Hospice Hospitality House.

The Board approved a proposal from the Northeast Wyoming Community Health Foundation (formerly the Campbell County Healthcare Foundation) to take the following steps with regard to the Close to Home Hospice Hospitality House:

  • Consent to the Foundation’s proposal to remove the Foundation Program Coordinator from assisting with the CCH Hospice department and relieve CCH from any and all obligations for reimbursement of the Coordinator’s salary,
  • Consent to the Foundation’s proposal to close the Hospitality Wing of Close to Home,
  • Consent to the Foundation’s proposal that the upper level of the Close to Home building be winterized and,
  • Accept the cost going forward of utilities in the upper level of Close to Home.

“Campbell County Health will continue to provide outpatient hospice care to the community through the Home Health and Hospice department,” said Board Chair Adrian Gerrits. “In addition, inpatient hospice services will continue to be provided at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center.”
