Dale Reigle, former chief executive officer of Rocky Mountain Orthopaedic Associates in Grand Junction, received a lifetime achievement award from the American Alliance of Orthopaedic Executives.

“I have had the privilege to work with excellent doctors and caring coworkers, without whom I would have never been selected for this recognition,” said Reigle, who served for 21 years as CEO of the practice before retiring.

The AAOE presents its lifetime achievement award to a past president of the association who continued to devote time and energy to the organization after his or her term ended. Reigle served as president from 2008 to 2009.

Reigle joined Rocky Mountain Orthopaedic Associates in 1996. He orchestrated a merger with another orthopaedic clinic, grew the practice and oversaw the construction of a 24,000 square-foot building for the operation. Pam Bachorski and Ken Schreiner now oversee the practice as chief operating officer and financial controller, respectively.
