Physician | Mountain Family Health Centers
Dr. Kent Petrie has been a family physician in the Vail Valley since 1979. In 1980, he attended the first birth in the Vail Hospital’s newly opened maternity ward. Since then he has been devoted to women’s health services in our community and has attended more than 2500 births, including many “second generation” births (delivering babies of babies). Along the way he was awarded the Colorado Family Physician of the Year. He has taken his passion for the care of women and children to the mission field, serving and teaching in Honduras and Tanzania. After many years in private practice, Kent now works at Mountain Family Health Centers, our community health center serving the uninsured and at risk population in our valley. He is also the county health officer, supervising the Title X (Ten) women’s health program at the Eagle County Public Health offices.
