Martin Helldorfer retires from Exempla Healthcare
On Sept. 1 a farewell celebration was held at Exempla Healthcare in Denver for Martin Helldorfer, who is leaving the medical facility after eight years. He and his wife Theresa, who is recently retired, are moving to New Mexico.
Helldorfer became a part of the Exempla Healthcare family in 2001 as senior vice president of mission. His duties included responsibility for fostering the mission, vision and values of the organization, then integrating them throughout the organization’s culture.
At the same time while being responsible for maintaining and furthering Exempla St. Joseph Hospital’s Catholic identity, he served as a liaison with the Denver Archdiocese and with the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, sponsors of Exempla Healthcare.
An experienced administrator, Helldorfer served as vice president of mission, leadership and culture and as senior vice president for mission and human resources within national and regional health care systems. He is a psychologist with 18 years of clinical experience within hospitals, residential centers and clinics.
His published works include “The Work Trap” and “Prayer When It is Hard,” and he has authored numerous articles in professional journals. His latest book, “Healing with Heart, Inspirations for Health Care Professionals” won the 2008 Book of the Year Award from the American Journal of Nursing.
