Gunnison Valley Health Welcomes Mammography Coordinator, Deborah Stevens

Gunnison Valley Health recently welcomed Mammography Coordinator, Deborah Stevens, R.T., (R), (M), (ARRT), to the radiology department. 

Stevens attended Southwestern Oklahoma State University and received her associate degree in science. She completed her American Registry of Radiology Certification in 1995 and her American Registry of Mammography Certification in 1996.

Gunnison Valley Health CEO, Jason Amrich, said that Stevens’ experience and character will bring value to the health system. 

“Deborah is a talented mammographer,” said Amrich. “She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to women in the Gunnison Valley. She will be a strong partner for our radiologist, Dr. Graf, and our non-profit partner, Tough Enough to Wear Pink, as we continue to strengthen breast care services for our community.” 

Stevens has over twenty-seven years of experience in mammography. Prior to Gunnison Valley Health, she worked as the lead mammography technologist at Alliance Health Clinton in Clinton Oklahoma and Great Plains Regional Medical Center in Elk City Oklahoma.

Stevens is originally from Oklahoma. Her love of Colorado has always run deep, and she would come and visit several times a year. A year and a half ago she and her husband decided they wanted to move here full time. When Stevens saw the Gunnison Valley Health job listing, she was instantly intrigued. They made the move in October and have since come to love the small town feel of Gunnison. 

Stevens is passionate about helping women through mammography. She enjoys creating a comfortable and safe environment for patients to come to. 

“It is rewarding to be there for the patients,” said Stevens. “I treat everyone like they are my mom, my sister or my best friend. I expect the highest quality image possible. It might not always be good news, but I want to make the process it as comfortable and easy as possible.”
