Welcome Mr. Jeremy Pittman to the Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus! He begins serving as our CFO in January, helping to ensure the financial success of the hospital and building relationships with physicians.
Jeremy has worked for Centura for almost eight years, previously serving as the Controller (or head accountant) for all four Adventist hospitals in the Denver metro area. He also put his stamp on Littleton Adventist Hospital where he served as Director of Finance and business manager for Surgical Services.
His office will officially move onto the Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus in March, and he is most excited to provide health care services in a community that previously did not offer them. The best part of his job is the people that he works with - the current team members and the new ones who arrive almost daily.
Jeremy would like the residents of Castle Rock to know that the hospital will offer them a whole system of care, and that there will be very little reason to visit Denver for medical tests and procedures, "Small communities like ours don't always have the benefit of full-service medical care but we're lucky to work with the residents of Castle Rock who are very excited to have a hospital in their community to support," he noted.
He would like to focus on community wellness, and funding programs that will educate the public about a balanced, healthy lifestyle. They have created a support and outreach system for hospital employees and community members which will only continue to grow as the hospital nears completion.
Jeremy was born and raised in Colorado, where he attended Denver's Mile High Academy. He is married with a four-year-old son and an 18-month-old daughter. He enjoys visiting his family cabin in Grand Lake, snowmobiling, hiking, dirt biking, and all kinds of mountain fun. He is currently training for the Spring 2013 Colfax Marathon, his first.
