Dr. Diana Koelliker replaces Chris Darnell, who resigned his position as CEO in February, citing a need to be closer to his family in Montana. Koelliker will continue to serve as Medical Director of Emergency and Trauma Services at TRMC.

“We appreciate everything Chris has done for the Medical Center, and we respect his decision to put family first,” said Paul Reich, chair, Telluride Hospital District Board of Directors. “We are confident that Dr. Koelliker is the ideal person to guide the ship in the short term. As a respected member of the Telluride community, she has earned the trust of her colleagues, patients and the Board.”

In collaboration with TRMC’s senior leadership team, the Board of Directors appointed a Strategic Alternatives Committee to assess short-term and long-term options. Reich said the board expects to share more details as the SAC gathers information and makes its recommendations. In the meantime, it will be business as usual for patients, staff and the community.

“I am grateful for the support of the TRMC Board of Directors, leadership and staff,” said Koelliker. “I care deeply about our community and our medical center, and I look forward to the opportunity to lead our impressive team while continuing to care for patients in our ER.”
