Thanks for working here Thursday: Cathy Comeno-Stamato, CCMG Clinic Administration

Nov 14, 2018

Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family and the Campbell County, Wyoming community to know about the good work that they do for this organization.

Allow us to introduce you to Cathy Comeno-Stamato, MBA, BSN, RN, who works as a Project Coordinator – MACRA with the Campbell County Medical Group Clinic Administration in Gillette, Wyoming. Cathy earned both her Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) at the State University at Binghamton, New York. She’s been with CCH for three years, but has been working as a nurse for more than 30 years. Her position with Clinic Administration involves developing an ongoing strategy for compliance in reporting data to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). She says that she has learned through her experiences over the years to develop a very in-depth knowledge of the federal and state regulatory environments impacting healthcare.

Cathy was inspired to work in healthcare because she has always been interested in helping others. “I come from a large family that believes in the importance of caring for others. I have many family members who are involved in community service-related employment, such as firemen, a policeman, a teacher, nurses, a physical therapist and a physician,” she says.

Cathy calls her husband, Dr. Nick Stamato, FACC, an interventional cardiologist with CCMG Cardiology her healthcare hero. “He has always had a passion for what he does, and inspires those he works with to care for their patients as if they were members of the family and provides the best care imaginable,” she says. “He leads by example and inspires many to be really invested in the care they provide. He has also encouraged me and others to work hard and succeed at their own career goals. I earned my MBA while working full-time, raising a family and managing a large ambulatory practice; and he was a great source of support while I worked on that goal.”

When she’s not at work, Cathy (and her husband Nick) enjoy traveling, visiting their families, playing golf, watching the Orioles and the Cubs, hiking and exploring western spaces, and reading.

We asked Cathy what she likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence every day means to her. Check out her response:

“I enjoy educating others working in the clinic and the hospital (CCMH), about the changing healthcare payment landscape, which requires continuous education to stay up-to-date with new regulations. I also enjoy assisting the providers and managers in meeting the reporting compliance goals set by CMS, and together have achieved success in reporting annually since I started working here.

I enjoy meeting and working with my colleagues in Clinic Administration, the providers and clinical and operational staff in the clinics, and the associates in the other departments throughout the hospital that I interact with—especially the Information Technology team whose work is critical in enabling successful regulatory reporting.

To me this phrase—excellence every day—means always using 110% of your talents, experience and heart to achieve your own goals while delivering a high quality product, but also helping and encouraging those around you to realize their own goals and achieve high quality in their own work.”

We are quite fortunate to have you working for us, Cathy. Thank you for being on our team.
