Gary Brewer, Chief Executive Officer
I am humbled every day by the caregiving that happens at Valley View. I’ve said many times they are the finest people in healthcare – by far, the best people I’ve ever worked with. My job is to help provide the support and environment they need in order to get their work done. I’m proud of what we do at Valley View.
Charles Crevling, Chief Financial Officer
Valley View is truly a community hospital. It is not part of a larger system or tied to a corporate office that makes decisions for the communities where their hospitals do business. Instead, Valley View is making independent decisions which are in the best interest of the communities it serves. That is what drew me here. As Valley View’s Chief Financial Officer, expanding our programs and business planning to meet the needs of our growing community is my top priority.
Daniel Biggs, FACHE, Chief Human Resources Officer
I am so blessed to work for a great place like Valley View Hospital. It is a dream opportunity to work for such an exceptional organization in the most beautiful place on earth. I have a large family and we enjoy all that the Rocky Mountains have to offer. With so many children in school, I volunteer time as a member of the School Board for the Roaring Fork Valley, covering the communities of Basalt, Carbondale and Glenwood Springs, currently serving as School Board President.
Sandra Hurley, MS, RN, NE-BC, Chief Nursing Officer
I am inspired by the commitment of our nurses as they provide exemplary practice to improve, maintain and promote the health and well-being of patients, families and the community, making our nursing vision a reality. Everything we do at Valley View is focused on delivering quality care – our people, practice, technology and education. Because our patients are at the center of all we do, we strive to ensure that we deliver safe, effective and compassionate care. Our nurses are well educated and well qualified. I am honored to serve in the capacity of Chief Nursing Officer for such an inspirational, dedicated group of professionals.
David M. Brooks, MD, Chief Medical Officer
I am truly honored to be part of an organization that makes the patient the center of everything we do. The physicians, the nurses, and the staff are committed to putting patients first. These are more than words that go in mission statement or up on a lobby wall, but rather are the ideals that motivate the entire Valley View team. As a pediatrician, I have seen this in practice each day and now as the Chief Medical Officer, I aim to support this concept of patients first to the entire community.
Stacey Gavrell, Chief Community Relations Officer
Before joining the Valley View staff, I was a Valley View patient. That experience was unlike any other and it serves as a source of inspiration. The expertise and compassion of our providers, nurses and staff are remarkable. I am grateful to the many generations who have supported Valley View, ensuring great healthcare for our community. It is an honor to be part of the Valley View team and carry this legacy forward.
Chris Connin, Chief Information Officer
It is a blessing for me to have the opportunity to work with such an innovative, advancing and inspiring organization within an amazing community. While the staff and providers at Valley View Hospital focus on quality care and the well-being of our patients, our Information Technology staff focus on the surrounding technology and technical tools. We work in full partnership to assure a technically advanced, secure environment for patient data. While I am the Chief Information Officer, I am also a nurse and a patient. Community well-being remains at the core of all I do.
Vicki Dwyer, Chief Compliance Officer
I love living in Glenwood Springs and working at Valley View. Everyone from the Board of Trustees and the Administrative Team to the staff and physicians are dedicated to doing the right thing when it comes to patient care and complying with Federal and state Healthcare regulations.
George D. Trantow, Chief of Physician Operations
I am proud to support the physicians who make Valley View a special place for patients. Physicians drive the health of our community and the quality of healthcare. Our physicians are fortunate that Valley View has developed a patient-centric, physician-friendly culture that works for the region. My passion is to channel the energy, intelligence and clinical expertise of physicians to offer higher quality, better access, and lower healthcare costs for everyone. I enjoy this community and everything it offers and I give back by serving on the Town of Basalt Mayor’s Cabinet, chairing the Midvalley Trails Committee, and serving on the Board of the American Association of Orthopaedic Executives.
Gregg Minion, M.D., Chief Medical Informatics Officer
My family and I moved to Glenwood Springs in 2008 to continue my 20+ year practice of Emergency Medicine at a unique patient-centered health care facility. In the last two years, I have had the opportunity to shift my primary focus from patient care to implementing information technology solutions as a member of a truly inspired Valley View information technology team. Together, we work with and support all who work for Valley View to improve the health of our community by applying the unlimited potential of information technology to the challenges of modern health care.
