He has been with the Lifepoint Health team for 16 years and is the father to two girls ages 18 and 13. Greg enjoys everything outdoors, including hunting, fishing and riding his motorcycle. He has served in many other hospital cultures and considers Castleview to be by far the best.
Pugh is from Bluebell. He remembers Carbon well from his high school wrestling days and his years at the College of Eastern Utah (presently USU Eastern). He received his Bachelor’s in Accounting from UVU and continued on to receive an MBA from Southern Utah University. In 2010, he married the love of his life, Jaicee, and together they have three daughters and a son. Ryan loves to spend time with his family and all outdoor activities. New to Castleview Hospital, he is excited to be given the opportunity to work close to home and be part of a great team that can give back to the community.
The pair will base their presentation on cost of hospital services, community concerns, possible new service lines, recruiting and other matters concerning health care in the local area.
