Dr. Montbriand Named Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year

June 18th, 2006

Dr. Montbriand named Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year (Rocky Mountain Region)

Inspired by his fathers' ambition and drive and his wife's strategic thinking, Joel Montbriand, M.D., propelled Gastroenterology of the Rockies/Medamorph to new heights when the original practitioner left in 1994. Reshaping the practice with his vision, Joel led the company through a complete "technological transition" to enhance the quality of his medical practice. He sacrificed paychecks for months and worked "on call" every day for a  year to afford the cost of computerizing the office. His instinct to hire the right people at the right time - even if it meant hiring outside of the health services industry (unheard of in the industry) - proved beneficial. Over the last ten years, Joel ahs taken a practice of one physician in a single location to a practice of nine pracitioners and three medical centers, serving five counties.
