Gillette Resident, talks about the CCMH Inpatient Room Project
Written by broebling on August 16, 2018
|Jay Mahylis is a member of the Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC), a volunteer group of Gillette, Wyoming community members who look at Campbell County Health from the patient’s point of view. They help CCH make improvements through reviewing patient materials, secret shopping and other projects. PFAC members were part of the Campbell County Memorial Hospital inpatient room design committee and provided input about all aspects of the project, including frank discussions about the cost. Their opinions and some of the suggestions they shared with the architects and employees became part of the final design. They wanted to make sure the community was going to get the ‘best bang for their buck’ with quality care for patients.
On July 19, 2018, the Campbell County Health Board of Trustees voted to approve the construction of 33 new patient rooms in the space above the main lobby for Maternal Child, Medical/Surgical and Intensive Care units. Work on the construction project started on Monday, July 23. The total project cost is $23,921,758 and will be completed in February 2020.
