Kim Muramoto, Centura Health Trauma System Director, with oversight of 16 facilities, was unanimously appointed to Douglas County’s vacancy on the Tri-County Health Department Board of Health, by the Board of Douglas County Commissioners, on Tuesday, April 27.
A resident of Douglas County, Muramoto is a master’s prepared, licensed Colorado registered nurse with a background in emergency, critical care, trauma, flight nursing, injury prevention, and outreach.

Earlier this year, 23 candidates stepped forward in response to the Board of County Commissioner’s Feb. 4 call for applications to fill one vacant Douglas County seat on the Tri-County Board of Health.
The top four candidates were interviewed by the full Board of Douglas County Commissioners on March 3 and 4. In addition to Linda Fielding, appointed by the Commissioners to the Board of Health on Tuesday, March 9, Muramoto stood out as a top candidate among the four finalists. The Board of County Commissioners thus chose her to fill the second vacancy.
