Meet our Leadership
Manuel "Manny" Berman, FACHE
President & Chief Executive Officer
Joined Tuality: 1983
The way Manny Berman sees it, his role is to act as a facilitator and coach. It’s his job to make sure that the people who have the training are empowered to do their jobs and recognize their abilities to help them to succeed. His 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. His ideal Saturday afternoon involves a canoe or float tube, where the trout are biting and the companionship of his newest fishing buddies, his grandsons.
Stuart Currie, MD
Chief Medical Officer
Joined Tuality: 2002
Dr. Stuart Currie is a Family Physician who was one of the four original doctors at the Westside Medical Clinic in 2002. He has steadily accepted more responsibility within Tuality and was named Chief Medical Officer in 2014. Dr. 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, Dr. Currie and his family are 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.
Tim Fleischmann, CPA
Chief Financial Officer
Joined Tuality: 1992
After nearly two decades on the job, Tim Fleischmann 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. A perfect day is taking his son to the golf driving range. “At least, for now, he seems to love golf.” Another perfect day would be playing at Augusta National Golf Club the day after the Masters.
Ancillary Services Administrator
Joined Tuality: 1999
Steve Krautscheid has deep roots in Hillsboro, growing up on Jackson School Road when it was mostly farmland. He served as Tuality’s Director of Facilities & Properties until he was promoted to Ancillary Services Administrator in 2013. Krautscheid is a proponent of community based hospitals like Tuality. He calls Tuality an asset of the community. He enjoys spending his spare time with his family: wife Loretta, a professor at the University of Portland; daughter Beth, a medical school student at OHSU; sons Mark and Nick who are attending the University of Portland.
Chief Human Resource Officer
Kathy Ratliffe is a big believer in leadership training and development. “We need to continue to grow our people to be successful,” Ratliffe said. She believes that Tuality needs to invest in all employees to become the destination health care provider for our region because “it’s our primary resource.” She and her husband, Bill, spend time in Idaho where their two sons, Dan and Brian, operate a farming/cattle operation in Bellevue, Idaho.
Eunice 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 their patients is a full-time job, and it rests on Eunice Rech’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, Rech accompanied her husband John to professional car racing events. “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.”
Chief Operating Officer, Tuality Health Alliance
Joined Tuality: 2013
Chris Senz leads the Tuality Health Alliance (THA) that provides insurance coverage to approximately 16,000 low-income individuals in Washington County. She has been working in healthcare, and specifically with Medicaid populations for nearly 20 years. “I’m proud of the huge strides THA has made to improve customer experiences, automate more of our work, and build strong relationships with the providers in our community. What takes other health plans a staff of 200 or more, we accomplish the same with only 24!” In her spare time, you may find her watching movies, frequenting antique/junk shops, eating at really good restaurants, and spending lots of time with her family.
