Sept. 8 program to feature Visit Estes Park CEO
D.G. Redder to visit Estes Park Rotary Club
Nearly one in five Americans call rural communities home. These small towns are where neighbors know each other, listen to each other, and work together towards a common goal. These are close knit communities, great places for people to raise kids, start businesses and be close to family. The local hospital is an economic driver for the community as one of the largest employers, but they face issues as well providing updated services and state-of-the art equipment for ever changing healthcare needs, an aging population suffering from a greater number of chronic conditions, declining reimbursement rates, and disproportional funding levels. Tholen will talk about the role of rural hospitals and what challenges and opportunities are ahead.

They offer coverage 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. They cover all out-of-pocket expenses for members for both ground transportation and air ambulance across the world.
Arenson was born and raised in Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin—LaCrosse with a degree in Health Science/Community Health. She has spent her entire career in the healthcare industry, 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry and the past 3 year with MTS.
She lives in Fort Collins and is the proud parent of two children. She enjoys tennis, skiing, hiking, and spending time in the mountains.
