Dale Reigle, the recently retired CEO of Rocky Mountain Orthopaedic Associates, received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Alliance of Orthopaedic Executives in April.
Presented at the alliance’s national conference in Indianapolis, the award recognized Reigle for his dedication to orthopaedic practice management and the association itself.
The alliance is a national organization for orthopaedic practice executives that set the standard for knowledge and insight as it relates to practice management.
The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented each year to a past alliance president who has continued to dedicate time and energy to the association even after his or her term has ended.
Reigle served as president of the national organization from 2008 to 2009.
