Aspen hospital names board finalists

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN ” Aspen Valley Hospital has narrowed the list of potential board member to three, and the three final­ists will be interviewed by the current board at a meet­ing on Oct. 13.

The three finalists are Chuck Frias, Peter Louras and Taylor Liebmann. Three other applicants, including Albert Slap, Riggs Klika and Gerald Grayson, were elim­inated by board members Barry Mink and Lee Schu­macher in a preliminary review of the applications.

The board meeting on Oct. 13 is scheduled to begin at 5:30, and Nell Strijbos-Arthur of the hospital’s administration office said she expects the interviews to begin soon afterward.

The board has until Nov. 11 to pick a new board mem­ber to replace former board member John Jellinek.

Jellinek resigned in early September after a series of stories in The Aspen Daily News highlighted financial difficulties he was having personally, and aired allega­tions that he had improperly used his position as a board member to get special treatment from local banks.
