Hi. I’m Jim Trounson, the founder of Medvale.
Healthcare has been my calling for my entire professional life. For me, it’s the right combination of meaningful work and entrepreneurship.
Following service in Vietnam, I returned to Idaho to become the CEO of a hospital and help initiate and run a family medicine residency—before starting America’s first physician practice management and staff leasing company.
As an entrepreneur, I know the challenges of the good folks out there who are bringing their ideas to market…and I want to help. But I can’t do much alone. Hence my determination to build a community. I think of my sweet little hometown of Wendell, Idaho…population 1,232 when I was growing up there. Everyone helped each other. Most of what I needed was right there. What a fortuitous launching pad for me, as I hope Medvale will be for others.
I love introducing people I like to other people and ideas I like. Medvale is built to do just that.

I come to Medvale from a four-year stint at the Spanish Embassy in Colombia, where I worked as Communications and Public Relations Consultant at the Cultural Affairs Office. I have experience in journalism, video production, and advertising.
