A Change at the Top for Valley View Hospital

After more than two decades leading Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs, Gary Brewer has announced his retirement.  He has overseen dramatic changes at the facility in his 21 years of service.  With a decade long 400,000 sq.ft. addition completed in 2012, Valley View is now able to offer health care services that space restrictions would previously not accommodate including interventional cardiology, neurosurgery and comprehensive cancer care.   Brewer will close his service to the hospital in early summer but intends to remain in the community.

He will be replaced by a veteran member of the Glenwood Springs medical community, Urologist Brian Murphy.  Dr. Murphy has practiced in the Roaring Fork Valley for 18 years and has served in a variety of leadership roles at the hospital including chief of staff and chief medical officer.
