Dr. Peter Rutherford has much to be proud of in his tenure at the helm of Confluence Health for the past 11 years. He and his team were successful in implementing a complicated affiliation between Central Washington Hospital and what was then Wenatchee Valley Medical Center when financial difficulties at the hospital threatened to upend our local health care system.

At the heart of Rutherford’s contributions to Confluence Health is the care he has for the patients he has continued to serve while heading up Confluence and chairing its board.
