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.
Meet Shawn Gallagher, a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) in CCH’s
Rehabilitation Services Department. For those who don’t know, PTAs work under the direction
and supervision of physical therapists. They help patients who are recovering
from injuries and illnesses regain movement and manage pain.
Shawn earned his Associates Degree in applied sciences PTA program from
Finlandia University. He’s been at CCH for six and a half years. Shawn was inspired to
work in healthcare because, he enjoys “working with people and it
is a huge reward to help people learn a new physical skill or regain a
prior level of function—I get to help improve someone’s quality
of life, essentially.” We asked Shawn what he likes most about working
for CCH, and what excellence every day means to him. Check out his response:
“CCH offers great
benefits, and I work with some really great people; but, most of all, CCH offers
endless opportunities to advance my education through continuing education.
And all of that means that I get to help a wide variety of patients. As
an added bonus: The teamwork in Rehab Services is hard to beat, and so
is the compassion and skill level. I also have all the equipment necessary
to do my job.
Excellence every day is performing at the highest level I am capable of
every single day, and if I am not equipped to help a patient, I make sure
to assist the Physical Therapist in finding the perfect care provider
who can provide the best possible care.”
Shawn, thank you for taking such great care of our patients. We appreciate you!
