Meet our Leadership

imageManuel "Manny" Berman, FACHE
President & Chief Executive Officer

Joined Tuality: 1983
The way Manny sees it, his role is to act as a facilitator/coach. It’s his job to make sure that the individuals who have the training are empowered to do their jobs and to help people recognize their abilities and help them succeed. Manny’s wife, Karen, worked in Community Relations for eight years and is now enjoying retirement. He’s especially proud of his two daughters, one a psychiatric nurse practitioner and the other who lives in Pleasanton, California. Manny’s ideal Saturday afternoon involves a canoe or float tube, a sense for where the lake trout are biting and the companionship of his newest fishing buddies, his grandsons.

Vice President of Health Care Development

Joined Tuality Administration: 1973

After his career in the Air Force, John took a position at Tuality as an orthopedic surgeon, yet, as he has changed positions over the years, one thing has remained the same: a passion for helping his organization succeed. As VP of Health Care Development, he realizes the importance of looking into the future and being sensitive to community needs and services. In his off hours, John enjoys playing Bach on the piano and heading to California’s Russian River Valley to tend to his Pinot Noir Vineyards.


Stuart Currie, MD
Vice President of Medical Affairs

Joined Tuality: 2002
Currie is a Family Physician who was one of the four original doctors to staff the Westside Medical Clinic in 2002. He has steadily accepted more responsibility within the organization and was named Vice President of Medical Affairs in 2012. Currie wants to teach, motivate and lead the medical staff into the future. “To succeed in this changing marketplace we must be innovative and nimble” A multi-instrumentalist, Stuart and his family are very involved in the Portland School of Rock, a music school that teaches kids how to “rock on stage and in life”. When there’s down time he can probably be found in his home studio.

Chief Financial Officer

Joined Tuality: 1992

After nearly two decades on the job, Tim is proud to see the growth in the Tuality network, such as the addition of the 7th Ave. Medical Plaza, the Tuality/OHSU Cancer Center, and the Pacific University campus. For Tim, a perfect day is taking his son, age five to the golf driving range. “At least,” he says, “for now, he seems to love golf.” Another perfect day would be playing at Augusta National Golf Club the day after the Masters.

In his spare time, Steve likes to spend time with his family: wife Loretta, a professor at the University of Portland; daughter Beth, a medical school student at OHSU; son Mark, a history/music major at University of Portland, and son Nick, a graduating senior who will attend the University of Portland in fall of 2014.


imageKathy Ratliffe
Chief Human Resource Officer

Kathy is one of the newest members of the Administrative Council, joining the group in late 2013. Kathy is a big believer in leadership training and development. “We need to continue to grow our people to be successful,” she said. She also thinks Tuality needs to invest in all employees to become the destination health care provider for our region because “it’s our primary resource.” Kathy and her husband, Bill, spend time in Idaho where her two sons, Dan and Brian, operate a farming/cattle operation in Bellevue, Idaho.


imageEunice Rech, RN
Chief Clinical Officer, Administrator of Quality Services

Joined Tuality: 2006

Keeping the clinical staff well-cared-for and energized to take the best possible care of its patients is a full-time job, and it rests on Eunice’s shoulders. Keeping the quality of care high is a priority for her as well, and she always keeps her eyes open for health care professionals who are looking for opportunities to be involved in the decision-making process. For several years, Eunice accompanied her husband John to professional car racing events. Says Eunice, “There was no pay, just an occasional soggy ham sandwich. But we love racing and we still get a Christmas card from Mario Andretti each year.”


Sonney Sapra
Chief Information Officer, Director of Information Systems

Joined Tuality: 2008
Sapra is the newest member of the administration team and is tasked with guiding Tuality Healthcare through the often murky waters of information technology, Electronic Medical Records and Meaningful Use to comply with the Affordable Care Act. Sapra loves to spend time with his wife and two children. The whole family has a passion for travelling and exploring new places and cultures. Sapra also likes to spend time in the kitchen cooking when time permits.

After two decades at the helm of Tuality, Dick believes this is one of the best community hospitals in the northwest. "We live our mission of providing quality services and building a healthier community every day through our many outreach programs to meet health needs in the area." In his spare time he enjoys his three grandchildren, motorcycle touring, and playing bass and baritone in various groups and combos. Dick came to Tuality from Straub Clinic & Hospital and Straub Health Plan in Honolulu. He and his wife, Doreen, visit family in Hawaii regularly, but prefer the four seasons and their vegetable garden in Forest Grove.
