Bio: HopeWest is excited to announce that Dusty Dodson has accepted a position as the new Senior Vice President over the HopeWest PACE program. Dusty has been a long time, highly respected, health care administrator on the Western Slope and most recently has served as a health care consultant. For a decade he was the Director of Extended Care and Services for Grand River Hospital District. He has an extensive background in both acute and long term care, and has served as a consultant for CMS Region V. He holds an MBA in Healthcare Administration from the University of Colorado and a B.A. in Sociology.

Dusty has been active in the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and has served on the board of the Colorado Health Care Association. He has also been involved with governmental affairs and policy working as a Governor-appointed member of the Community Living Advisory Group and Colorado Rural Health Center Policy Committee.

Throughout his career as a leader in healthcare, he has been successful in not only starting programs but dramatically turning around programs. Dusty strongly believes in the power of teamwork and credits his successful track record to those who have worked for him – speaking volumes about his leadership style.

HopeWest is truly thrilled to have Dusty as part of our Senior Leadership Team and knows that the people working on his team will enjoy working for such an inspirational and capable leader.
