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

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've also taught Respiratory Therapy classes at Lane Community College and have sat on the advisory board. I've always enjoyed the field of respiratory care and working with patients to help improve their quality of life.


Sharron Nurre - Owner / CEO

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 "temporarily." After 10 years of working as a customer service rep for Pneu-Med, I retired once again. After Ken passed 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. 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.


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, I was promoted to my current position as Business Manager. I've always been proud of the fact that we are locally owned and operated which allows us a tremendous amount of flexibility with our clients. We can make decisions on a local level that improve their quality of care/service and assist with financial problems as they arise.

I've watched home care change greatly over the last 30 years and have stayed current with Medicare and insurance policies for the items and services we provide. I've been fortunate to work with good people during my time here - employees and clients alike. With the challenges facing the healthcare industry, Pneu-Med will continue to do its best to put the patient and their care first.


Stuart Nurre, MS, RRT, RN Clinical Services Supervisor

I have been the clinical services supervisor at Pneu-Med since 2005. I have a degree in respiratory therapy and nursing and also hold a specialty certification in neonatal and pediatric care.

I hold a graduate degree in exercise physiology and 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 individual. If you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
