Congratulations and welcome to all!
And while we are sad they will be leaving us, we appreciate their vital contributions to our organization and congratulate Chief Medical Officer Jules Rosen MD and Financial Officer John Rattle on their well-earned retirements this coming summer. Dr. Rosen, named a “Best Doctor in America” for 15 years straight, has been with our organization since 2013 and will continue to work parttime with us on a broad array of projects, from geriatrics to kids. After 3 years with us on the western slope, John will be returning to the front range to do full financial analyses of his honey-do list and use that riding mower again!
