Margaret Soforenko, Nurse Practitioner

Margaret Soforenko, NP, is a nurse practitioner at the Heart and Vascular Center at Valley View. She completed her bachelor’s degree at Kenyon College in Ohio, before earning her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Pennsylvania. She brings more than 20 years of experience in cardiothoracic care to her position at Valley View, with expertise in operating room procedures as well as every aspect of patient management.

She enjoys the fast-paced nature of cardiothoracic medicine, as well as the opportunity to fix things in the operating room. “I love working with patients and their families in their moments of crisis, when we can help them through these extremely difficult health situations,” Margaret says. “We get the chance to fix their bodies and guide them through recovery with this new lease on life, and that’s incredibly rewarding.”

“The heart is the center of the body,” she continues. “Everything in a person’s body is interconnected with heart functions, and you get a very clear picture of a person’s health through the lens of their cardiovascular condition.”

Margaret truly appreciates her patients in the Roaring Fork Valley. “People are so genuine, caring and helpful here,” she says. “Glenwood Springs is full of great people, and it’s a pleasure to help them and make their lives better.”
