In this new role, Kirsch will oversee the EMS department, leading over 90 employees at four bases across three counties in Northeast Wyoming.

He initially joined as a PRN EMT and embarked on a journey of growth and development, advancing through various licensure levels to become a Paramedic. His dedication and hard work led him to a full-time role in 2017, and he subsequently climbed the ranks, holding positions such as Lead Medic and Operations/Logistics Shift Supervisor, leading up to this exciting next step in his career.

He takes feedback from peers and colleagues seriously, leveraging it to enhance his performance and leadership skills. He has come so far, and I am very excited that he has accepted the Manager of CCH-EMS position."

Outside of his professional commitments, Kirsch is an avid outdoorsman. He enjoys hunting, fishing, and spending time in the mountains. Kirsch's wife, Geraghty, is an RN in CCH’s Emergency Department, and the couple shares a love for travel and adventure.

"I am honored and thrilled to take on this new role as Manager of CCH-EMS," said Kirsch. "Campbell County Health has been my professional home for many years now, and I am deeply invested in ensuring the highest standards of care for our community. I look forward to working closely with our dedicated EMS team and collaborating with other departments to uphold our commitment to Excellence Every Day."
