Gunnison Valley Health Invites Community to Meet New CEO, Jason Amrich

On January 10 and 12, Gunnison Valley Health will host two CEO meet and greet events for the community in Gunnison and Crested Butte. The events are an opportunity to meet new CEO, Jason Amrich, and share your thoughts on the current state of the health system in Gunnison County.

Amrich came to Gunnison Valley Health from UCHealth where he served as the Vice President of Operations for Longs Peak Hospital, Broomfield Hospital and Longs Peak Surgery Center. He brings with him a combination of clinical and administrative experience and understands the role the community plays to the success of the health system.

“I want to learn from my new community and know what you think is working and what services we are missing in the valley,” Amrich said. “I am deeply committed to ensuring that Gunnison Valley Health is stable and providing the right services for everyone living in or visiting Gunnison County.”

The meet and greets are casual, drop-in style events with no formal program planned. This is an opportunity to have a conversation with the leader of your health system and discuss any topics that are on your mind.

The Crested Butte meet and greet is happening on Monday, January 10 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Crested Butte Center for the Arts. Please note, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test is required to enter the Center for the Arts.

In Gunnison, the meet and greet is happening in the main lobby of the hospital from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 12. Please enter through the main (North) entrance and note that face masks are required in the hospital.

“I am thrilled to be a part of the Gunnison Valley community. Not only am I invested in the health system as its leader, but also because the care we provide and you rely on, is the same care I am relying on for me and my family,” Amrich said. “I look forward to meeting you and hearing your thoughts on healthcare in the valley.”
