New Leader Brings Clinical and Personal Experience to Grand Rapids’ Holland Home

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Curtis E. Gritters was recently named Vice President of Development for Holland Home. Gritters started in April after 19 years with Spectrum Health, most recently as Director of Provider Contracting and Provider Analytics at Priority Health.

    In this role, Gritters is responsible for promoting Biblical stewardship and providing overall leadership to the development efforts for Holland Home and Faith Hospice.  He is tasked with planning and implementing fund raising and development programs to advance the mission of Holland Home and Faith Hospice.

    Gritters has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Calvin University where he was class president. He also has an Executive Master of Business Administration from Grand Valley State University.

    As a Registered Nurse with diverse clinical and leadership experience, Gritters brings a unique perspective to an experienced team at Holland Home.

    “I am eager to apply my mission, experience, and passion to further the cause of an organization like-minded to me,” said Gritters, 41, a resident of Hudsonville with wife Julie and four children. “Holland Home and Faith Hospice genuinely know and care for their residents and patients.  I witnessed that personally when Faith Hospice recently took care of my grandfather, and there are thousands of compelling stories just like this in the Holland Home community.  So I count it quite a privilege to work alongside colleagues to make these stories possible.”

    Holland Home leadership also believes Gritters’ background will help him advance the Holland Home and Faith Hospice story.

    “Curt will add a fresh perspective to Holland Home leadership and an authentic voice for our mission,” said Holland Home President and Chief Executive Officer Troy Vugteveen. “He had direct interaction with Holland Home while working in provider relations at Priority Health, so he has seen us from the ‘other side of the table’, which is very helpful insight for us to learn from.”
