Meet the Pneu-Med team

Dick Nurre, RRT, RCP - Owner/President/General Manager.

Dick Nurre

I was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon. I attended Grossmont College in San Diego where I received an Associate of Science degree in Respiratory Therapy. In 1975 I relocated back to Eugene where I accepted the position of Chief of Cardio-Pulmonary Services at Sacred Heart Hospital. In 1980 I came to Pneu-Med and have been here ever since. I was voted practitioner of the year for the Oregon Society of Respiratory Care in 2001. I have also taught Respiratory Therapy classes at Lane Community College and continue to sit on the advisory board. I have always enjoyed the field of Respiratory care and working with patients to help improve their quality of life.

Sharron Nurre - Owner / CEO.

Sharron Nurre

I was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon. After retiring from Sacred Heart Medical Center after 25 years I came to Pneu-Med at the request of my husband Ken Pyle to help out "temporarily". After 10 years of working as a customer service rep for Pneu-Med I retired once again. After the death of Ken in 2005 I became the CEO and came back to work. My son Patrick also joined the company and has worked as one of our customer service reps for the last 6 years. In January of 2010 I married Dick Nurre. Pneu-Med has always been a family owned and operated company that has worked hard to serve the needs of our community.

V.C. Vitums, MD, Pulmonology - Medical Director since 1978.

Stephanie Glines - Business Manager.

I was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon. I started at Pneu-Med in December of 1989 as a file clerk. I have since performed the duties of customer service, billing, and office manager. In 2005 after the death of our founder Ken Pyle, I was promoted to my current position of Business Manager. I have always been proud of the fact that we are locally owned and operated which allows us a tremendous amount of flexibility in dealing with our clients. We are able to make decisions on a local level that improve their quality of care/service and assist with financial problems as they arise. I have watched home care change greatly over the last 21 years and have stayed current with Medicare and insurance policy for the items and services we provide. I have been fortunate to work with good people for the last 21 years - employees and clients alike. With the challenges facing the health care industry Pneu-Med will continue to do it's best to put the patient and their care first.

Stuart Nurre, MS, RRT, RN Clinical Services Supervisor.

I also hold a specialty certification in neonatal and pediatric care. I have a graduate degree in exercise physiology. I strive to ensure that my department delivers the highest level of care in both respiratory therapy and sleep medicine to our patients. We act as a liaison between patients and their physicians to guarantee the correct therapy is ordered for each patient. If you have any concerns please don't hesitate to contact me.
