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.
Say hello to Leslea King, who is a Registered Nurse (RN) on the Campbell
County Memorial Hospital
Medical-Surgical Unit in Gillette, Wyoming. She’s worked for CCH since September 2014
and earned her degree at
Gillette College. For those who don’t know, Med/Surg nurses practice in a stimulating,
and demanding, setting. Many will say it’s not for the faint-hearted,
but the work is very rewarding. Nurses on this unit can care for patients
across many age levels, with a huge variety of disease categories or injuries,
and with different degrees of acuity. The must be knowledgeable about
all age groups, from infants to geriatrics, which can make working on
the unit a challenge because of the variety of the patients.
Leslea chose a career in health care because her mother got very sick when
she was young. “I cared for her while she healed at home. She referred
to me as her little nurse,” she says. “I’ve always enjoyed
caring for people when they were ill or needed me most.”
When asked about her health care hero, Leslea mentioned
Rocky Reno, RN, who also works on the Med/Surg Unit. “We worked together on
Med/Surg when I started as a new grad on the floor. She always inspired
me to create a special bond with each of my patients. She made work fun,
always had a smile on her face no matter what, and her laugh is so contagious!
You just can’t help but be in a good mood when Rocky is around.
I enjoyed listening to her stories from her years of experience as a nurse,” she says.
When she’s not at work, Leslea enjoys spending every spare minute
she has with her two beautiful daughters. “My children as my life,”
she says. “My oldest is active in sports so we spend a lot of family
time supporting her. We also enjoy camping and being outdoors together
whether in the backyard or the lake. In fact, we just returned from
We asked Leslea what she likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence
every day means to her. Check out her response:
“In my department I enjoy the diversity of care we provide from pediatric
to geriatric patients, and both medical and surgical patients. Every day
and every patient is different; you never know what will be next! Nothing
beats hearing how much someone appreciates your hard work, and that you
are a great nurse. It is what I’ve spent years of my life trying
to achieve, and I sit back and reflect on how I’ve finally made it!
Excellence every day means that I come to work with a smile on my face,
I try my hardest to provide the best care possible to my patients and
I work as a team member to get the job done.”
Thank you, Leslea for your dedication to our patients. We are proud to
have you on our team.
