Thanks for working here this week: Sadie Cross, Radiation Therapist Heptner Cancer Center

Thanks for working here this week: Sadie Cross, Radiation Therapist Heptner Cancer Center

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 Sadie Cross, RT (R)(T), a Radiation Therapist in the Radiation Oncology unit in the Heptner Cancer Center in Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette, Wyoming. The Heptner Cancer Center provides advanced facilities and comprehensive treatment programs including Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy, and Cancer Rehabilitation for patients in northeastern Wyoming.

For those who don’t know, CCH’s Radiation Oncology area utilizes ionizing radiation from a machine called a linear accelerator to break up and destroy the molecules within the tumor cells. CCH’s Varian 21iX Linear Accelerator utilizes the newest technology offered (including IMRT, CBCT) in the Radiation Therapy field.

Sadie earned her Associates of Science from Eastern Wyoming College, a Radiography certification from Casper College, and her Radiation Therapy certification from Mitchell Technical Institute. She’s worked for CCH for four years, and has worked in health care for 11 years total. Certified therapists like Sadie administer radiation therapy according to measurements and protocols determined by the radiation oncologist and medical physicist.

A career in healthcare was an easy choice for Sadie. “I have always loved providing care to those in need,” she said. “I truly enjoy making a difference in my patients lives.”

When she’s not at work, Sadie loves gardening, fishing, roping and working on the ranch.

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

“I normally get to see the same patients for 30 plus days and they become more like family than patients. Also some of my coworkers have become great friends. They are always willing to help when needed and often bring a humors light to the day. We make up a very enjoyable team.

Excellence every day is providing the best possible care every day.”

Thank you, Sadie, for making CCH a great place to receive quality cancer care. We appreciate you.
