Hospital negotiations

People leave through the main entrance to Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette. Gillette residents are questioning why UCHealth would want to affiliate with Campbell County Health, wondering, what's in it for them? A decision on whether to move forward with the affiliation is expected next week.

Ahead of next week’s Campbell County Health board meeting where trustees are expected to consider the terms to base a contract to affiliate with UCHealth, one key question has hung above the public discourse surrounding the potential deal.

What’s in it for UCHealth?

Mr Anderson’s last comment begs the question why anybody would serve on the Board of Hospital Trustees. If you agree with his statement, how can you trust any member of the Board of Trustees? Kind of a silly comment when it is realized that none of the trustees are paid.
