Dr. Greg Butler comes to the Board with 37 years of experience in his career, having retired recently as Senior Medical Director of Diagnostic Imaging at Nova Scotia Health, including three years as the Chief of Medical Staff and a Specialist in Nuclear Medicine, and having worked as a staff Radiologist at Valley Regional Hospital from 1981-2018.
Dr. Butler has been volunteering with the Valley Regional Hospital Foundation Board for several years, most recently as the outgoing President for 2020. He brings his experience to help fundraise for the Radiology Department, recognizing its need to depend on capital equipment funding. In 2018, Dr. Butler was pivotal in fundraising for a new digital X-Ray room as well as a new portable Ultrasound Machine, and again in 2020, successfully bringing on a C-Arm machine to replace obsolete equipment.
As Dr. Butler continues to volunteer on the Board, he is assisting with the fundraising to replace a CT scanner for Valley Regional Hospital that will allow for a continued variety of services available to our rural communities, keeping healthcare access close to home.
