Family practice selected for rural rotation training

The Colorado Commission on Family Medicine added MidValley Family Practice, owned by Dr. Glenn Kotz, to a group of 11 rural rotation sites where family-medicine resident doctors can complete a required, one-month rural practice experience during their three-year residency.

To gain information to help their selection, representatives of the commission visited the site, located at 1450 E. Valley Road, Unit 102, in Basalt.

Physicians will begin training in Basalt in July. Colorado family medicine residencies graduate 68 family physicians a year, and 68 percent of the graduates stay in Colorado to practice, according to a statement.

Established by the Colorado Legislature in 1977, the commission’s mission is to address the health care needs of the people of Colorado through the education of family physicians and the promotion of patient-centered primary care.


Della + Zella design firm celebrates anniversary

Della + Zella Interiors, owned and operated by Carrie Wolfer and Maggi Whitmer, has announced its first anniversary.

The design duo has completed several furnishing projects and gut renovations in Aspen’s downtown core, the West End and Snowmass since their partnership began in February 2013. They are currently working on new residential construction projects in Starwood and Snowmass.

“We feel really fortunate about the timing of the start of our business,” Wolfer said in a statement. “It coincided with the rebound of the economy, which means we’ve been busy since day one.”

Della + Zella opened its first office in November at 410 N. Mill St., Suite B5, a move Wolfer said has contributed to the company’s overall success.

“Interior designers have a reputation for working out of their houses,” she said. “But having a presence in downtown Aspen not only legitimizes you for some of the larger projects — it keeps you in the forefront of the minds of potential clients, architects, contractors, developers and other people that have been key to our success.”
