Middle Park Health’s Physical Therapists
The Rehabilitation team at Middle Park Health is a tight-knit group of therapists who set the bar for patient care excellence. They acknowledge that each patient is unique, and they tailor their treatment to incorporate individual goals with professionalism and superior collaboration with the medical team. 95% of our patients would recommend our services to others, so we feel our approach works!
Spread throughout the community with clinics in Fraser, Granby, Kremmling, and Walden, the entire team is skilled at treating both inpatients and outpatients allowing excellent continuity of care. As providers in a rural setting, collectively our team can treat almost anything that comes into our clinic with each provider specializing in their own unique niche such as pelvic floor therapy, dry needling, concussion rehab, vestibular rehab, and sports rehab- to name a few.
It’s an honor to serve this wonderful community and we are humbled by this recognition.
Melvin came to the U.S. from Puerto Rico and has been living in Grand County for more than 4 years. He is a hard-working frontline employee, holding not one, but two full-time jobs (one at the Shell gas station in Fraser from 5:30 am–1:30 pm and another at City Market in
Granby from 2:30–11 pm). That’s more than 80 hours per week!
He works to make money to build a house back home. He is having the house built so that his mother will have a place away from “the aunties” (all her sisters) and where he can stay when he visits his mom once a year.
If you search for Melvin Duran on YouTube, you’ll find that he was a contestant in the 2013 Idol Puerto Rico, and if you listen, you’ll hear that he has an amazing voice!
The person who nominated Melvin said, “Not only has Melvin put his health on the line during the pandemic and made sacrifices to his health, but he puts his family first.”

A Registered Nurse since 2014, Dena has recently become a Certified Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nurse Specialist. A Colorado native, born and raised in Arvada, she moved to Grand County for the love of the mountains. As a new graduate nurse, wound and ostomy care sparked her interest. Consequently, throughout her career she has cared for many patients with new ostomies fresh out of surgery and large complicated wounds. Currently practicing at Middle Park Health, she has quickly become passionate about the specialty and loves being a hand in the healing process. Dena says, “There’s no better feeling in the world than giving a patient their life back.”
She is very happy spending time outdoors. Her favorite hobbies are snowboarding and snowmobiling. In the summer, she passes the time working on her garden, dirt biking, paddle boarding, and hiking with her husband and two dogs.
