              Trampas  Hutches




Trampas is an up and coming healthcare executive who is coming to us from Middle Park Medical Center in Colorado where he was serving as the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Information Officer.  While in those roles for the past two years, he has achieved solid accomplishments, including patient satisfaction increases, labor cost decreases and successful physician recruitment.  He also served as interim CEO for six months, establishing himself as a passionate and service-driven leader with top-notch communication skills and a data-driven, results-oriented management style.

Trampas brings a very diverse background in healthcare to MMH.  Trampas started out as a CNA at the age of 16, after graduating from the University of Northern Colorado at Greeley with a BA in Kinesiology, he worked in cardiac rehab, the cardiac cath lab, anesthesiology and then in radiology after receiving an AAS in Radiology Technology from Pueblo Community College.  Trampas then jumped onto the administrative track, and earned his Master’s of Healthcare Administration from Clarkson College at the Nebraska Medical Center.

Trampas has told the board that he intends to focus on a multi-pronged approach from the start.  His plan includes: bench marking everything MMH does, from financial performance to operational performance, to continuously improve to be in the top 25th percentile in the nation for critical access hospitals, implement provider accountability, improve the clinic’s productivity, ensure that the expansion is on time and on budget, and establish a clear connection to the community to regain their trust.

“I am excited to get working on all of these great opportunities.  I really do believe that Melissa Memorial Hospital can be one of the premier critical access hospitals in the nation, and I am happy to be part of this team.”  Hutches stated.  “At the end of the day, taking care of our patients the best we can is what we need to focus on.”
