Castleview Hospital swung its doors open wide on Tuesday afternoon as they welcomed members of the community to its Meet Our O’s event. This event was hosted to introduce and acquaint locals with Greg Cook, CEO, Ryan Pugh, CFO, and Grant Barraclough, CNO.
Cook hails from Vernal and received his Bachelor’s in accounting from UVSC, which is now known as Utah Valley University. Cook has been a member of the LifePoint Health team for 16 years and is father to two girls, aged 17 and 13. He was listed as enjoying a plethora of outdoor activities, especially riding his motorcycle. While Cook has served in many other hospitals, he stated that he believes Castleview to be the best.
Pugh’s hometown is Bluebell, but he recalls Carbon County easily from his days in high school wrestling and even attending the College of Eastern Utah, now Utah State University Eastern. Pugh, like Cook, received his Bachelor’s in accounting at UVU. He then continued his schooling to receive an MBA from Southern Utah University.
Pugh and his wife, Jaicee, are parents to four young children, three girls and one boy. Pugh is new to the Castleview family and expressed his excitement in being given the opportunity to work so closely to home while being a part of such a great team.
Finally, CNO Barraclough is from Woods Cross and received his nursing degree from CEU. Barraclough also received a BSN and MSN from Western Governors University. He also served as the assistant and head volleyball coach for USUE for over 12 years.
Barraclough has been a member of the Castleview team many times since 2005 and has served in a number of departments. He was named ACNO in 2016 with CNO following in 2017.
Barraclough is father to three children, two boys and one girl, with his wife Crystal. He is cited to enjoy spending time outdoors and watching movies. Barraclough stated that he believes healthcare is a calling and those that work in it serve their community.
