Campbell County Health was ranked as one of the top places to work in healthcare this year. The list was put together by Becker's Hospital Review, a leading healthcare industry publication.

It's the second straight year the health system made the list, and it's the only healthcare organization in Wyoming included.

The national rankings take into account employee benefits and opportunities for growth. Campbell County Health was recognized for its commitment to employee development by providing education and leadership training opportunities, said Noamie Niemitalo, vice president of human resources at Campbell County Health.

"We have ongoing leadership training we provide to managers, directors, supervisors, so hopefully, we are then better leaders to help support our staff. Then we also have a formal succession planning leadership program that people can apply for," she said.

This will be the second year for the new training program, and the goal is to create leaders from within the organization, Niemitalo said.

She added that employees also have opportunities to take educational courses and to get additional certifications.

Niemitalo said Campbell County Health also has a wellness program for employees.

"So you get a free blood draw that looks at everything, you get to meet with a health coach a couple of times a year, work on different goals that you want to. Then each year if you meet your goals, there's a bonus and there's a deduction on your health insurance," she said.

Campbell County Health employs more than 1,200 people, and around 57 percent have been with the health system for five years or more.
