Manuel “Manny” Berman, FACHE
President & Chief Executive Officer
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 the Community Relations Department 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 with his grandsons.

Chief Financial Officer
After more than 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. He says of his son, "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.
Chief Human Resources Officer
Cheryl Gebhart brings a unique background that spans across senior leadership roles not only within human resources, but also in nursing where she still maintains her RN license. Her most recent role was at Providence as their Director of Human Resources for Regional Shared Services, and her past positions include roles such as Director of HR for Providence Medical Group, Health Plan and Newberg Hospital, Chief HR Officer at Willamette Valley Medical Center, and Director of HR and Nursing Education Director at Mid-Columbia Medical Center.
Ancillary Services Administrator
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 to 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; and sons Mark and Nick, who are attending the University of Portland.
Chief Clinical Officer
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."
