A New Logo For a New Chapter


Alpine Orthopaedics has never been content to settle for just ‘what works,’ what’s easy, or to grow complacent, and we don’t intend to begin now.

Today we are announcing our new logo and new branding. For Alpine Orthopaedics, this is about so much more than just a new look for our practice. We have been serving this community for more than 18 years. Over these nearly two decades, our vision and promise have remained the same: To provide the residents of Gunnison Valley, as well as its visitors, with the highest quality and most affordable care possible. As we look ahead, we are more sure than ever that this vision still holds true, but we also believe there are new ways we can make this promise a reality in this community.


Recently, we took stock of our practice, and decided that there were two ways we could go… We could keep doing what has worked--for both our practice and our community--or we could dig deeper, reach further, and offer more. We are opting for the latter. We are passionate about investing in new areas of orthopaedic care, and we are excited about what the next twenty years will hold for Alpine Orthopaedics and our increasing role in this community. Our rebranding is as much a renewed commitment to what we’ve always done, as it is a promise to engage and invest in new ways.


As we look ahead, we’re excited about the opportunity to grow our practice and provide a greater variety of offerings to our community. We are exploring and expanding the full breadth and depth of orthopaedic services available, so that we can be sure we are providing our patients everything we can, fully utilizing the resources we have.


Alpine Orthopaedics owner, Dr. Gloria Beim, is irrefutably one of the most highly credentialed orthopaedic physicians around. With education and specialized training from top-notch medical programs, she not only serves as Western State Colorado University’s Head Team Physician, but she is continuously recognized by the United States Olympic Committee, asked to care for the world's finest athletes as they compete around the globe. Dr. Blake Clifton has made his mark in Gunnison Valley as the premier joint replacement surgeon in the area, as well as being one of few doctors outside of Denver who specializes in injuries in still-growing kids. Fellowship trained in Sports Medicine, our docs are not just familiar with, but experts in, the diagnosis and treatment of sports-related injuries.


We hold a deep belief that together is better. Our larger community includes many outstanding physicians, a highly trained ski patrol, a first rate Search and Rescue (SAR) team, two stellar EMS crews and an award-winning hospital. As one of the longest standing orthopaedic practices in this town, we feel a responsibility to help foster collaboration between all of these amazing organizations and individuals for the betterment of our whole community. We want to see our network of care providers thrive because we believe everyone wins when they do. Toward that end, we will be exploring more ways to provide training to others; to provide physical space for healthcare needs; to provide access to the resources in our surgery center; and to collaborate more closely with all of the talented healthcare professionals in our Valley who share our belief: We are a community. We support each other. Together is better.

And so, with this new brand announcement, let our new logo represent our promise of the world-class quality you’ve come to expect from us, as well as our deeper investment in this community as we go forward.

This community, and your health, is too important for any of us to get complacent--to not consistently work towards improvement, to not always be asking ‘what could work better’... We believe there is more that can be done, and the best is indeed yet to come. For the past two decades, and for many more to follow, you can count on Alpine Orthopaedics to be leaders in orthopaedic care here, in Gunnison Valley.
