In addition, Birnie has recently taken on the executive operational leadership responsibilities for the health system's physician clinics, encompassing both primary care and specialty clinics. Her ability to take on new responsibilities and help enable operational excellence is a testament to her versatility and commitment to GVH.

Gunnison Valley Health CEO, Jason Amrich expressed his appreciation and support for Birnie.
