Campbell County Health to Retire the Pioneer Building

GILLETTE, WY--Campbell County Health (CCH) will be retiring the Pioneer Building (the former Pioneer Manor) at 709 W. Eighth St., over the next few months. An assessment completed in 2016 had determined a useful life of 5-10 years for the building. A recent assessment showed costs to maintain the building, such as utilities, HVAC, and plumbing at approximately $200,000 annually. Capital improvements needed to continue to use the building in the future are estimated at over $2,000,000 over the next several years.

The building currently houses Patient Financial Services (the CCH billing office), education and training classrooms, the CCH School-age Childcare program, and short-term housing for contractors, newly hired employees, students and physicians.

Plans have been developed for the services that are located in the Pioneer Building:

  • Patient Financial Services (PFS) will relocate to the fourth floor (north wing) of Campbell County Memorial Hospital. Health Information Management (Medical Records) will also be relocated adjacent to PFS. In addition, patients will be able to pay their bills and meet with a financial counselor by the main lobby, next to Patient Registration. Some remodeling of former patient rooms into offices must be completed on the fourth floor for this relocation project. The move is expected to be completed by the end of May 2022.
  • The education and training classrooms will move to Campbell County Memorial Hospital as of Monday, February 28, 2022. Students will receive directions to the specific classroom for their course(s) upon registration, and interior signage has been updated.
  • The school-age childcare program is being discontinued as of May 31, 2022. All parents who currently participate in the program have been notified and provided with other local, licensed options through DFS and the Boys and Girls Club.
  • Plans are being developed to work with local hotels to house students when needed.

“As part of our ongoing research on ways to reduce expenses, it made sense to look at all the facilities owned by CCH and use them as efficiently as possible,” said Interim CEO Jerry Klein. “This move will result in considerable cost savings for the organization.”
