Colleen Heeter steps into CCH CEO position July 1

Jun 10, 2020

I am honored to be selected as the next CEO of Campbell County Health, a role I’ll be stepping into on July 1. But I have some big shoes to fill—Andy Fitzgerald has led our health system through some of the most difficult times we’ve ever experienced with strength, compassion and wisdom. During his time as CEO, he’s spearheaded three major construction projects—the surgery expansion and main lobby project, the inpatient room replacement project, which was just and of course, The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center in Gillette, Wyoming. These projects will take us into the future for at least the next 40 years.

Fortunately for all of us, Andy has agreed to continue in a consulting role at Campbell County Health, helping with some very important projects like our strategic plan, COO Transition, and Baldrige Journey. I’m very happy to be able to tap into Andy’s historical experience and perspective for the next year.

I’m in the process right now of hiring a new Chief Operating Officer to focus on the operations side of the organization. I hope to extend an offer to a candidate very soon, so we can have that person on board before the end of the summer.

I believe in the future of Campbell County Health, and I know we will come back from the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic even stronger. It has been difficult for all of us, and I’m amazed and humbled at the way you have all done your part—doing tasks that you’ve never done before, creating new processes to keep patients safe, and even taking time off to preserve the financial health of the organization.

Thank you!
