Valerie Borsa, MD
Mt. Rose Health Center Palliative Care and Hospice
Valerie Borsa, MD moved from the Boulder/Denver area to Trinidad in 2006 to explore and take on the challenge of rural medicine. Her intention was to stay for a few years and then move on. Eleven years have passed, and she is still practicing in this lovely rural community in southern Colorado. To her surprise and delight, rural medicine seems to be a good fit.
Valerie grew up just outside of San Francisco. She moved to Colorado in 2000 after completing her medical residency at the University of West Virginia. She is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. She received her Doctorate of Medicine from Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica, British West Indies. She is a member in good standing with both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Medical Association.
Valerie enjoys long-distance running, travel and international medicine. She is a cofounder of The Heart to Health Foundation, a nonprofit organization which provides basic healthcare and education toward better living conditions to rural and indigent people living in remote regions of the world. She also enjoys rescuing aging, abused and neglected animals and has an array of dogs, cats, donkeys and, on occasion, goats.
