"Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center continues to increase access to primary care in our hospital district by employing more family medicine physicians," said hospital CEO Bob Morasko. "Dr. Otteni will provide patients in our service area with another opportunity to have care locally."

Dr. Otteni earned his medical degree from the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and completed his residency through the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's (UPMC) St. Margaret Family Medicine Residency Program. He has a special interest in sports medicine.

Dr. Otteni is relocating to the Upper Arkansas Valley from Pennsylvania but is familiar with Buena Vista from his days as a whitewater rafting, rock climbing and backpacking guide with Noah's Ark Whitewater Rafting & Adventure Company.
