Grand River Health

Emergency Department Medical Director

501 Airport Road in Rifle

Dr. Skwiot was born in Boulder, CO and realized he wanted to be an ED doctor during EMT training for Western State College Mountain Rescue Team in Gunnison, CO. He loved his rotations at Jackson Park Hospital and John Stroger Hospital Trauma Unit (formally Cook County Hospital) but that experience further cemented his desire to practice in the mountains of Colorado. Providing emergency medical care to people at Grand River Health is a dream come true for Matt and he values the opportunity to make some good out of bad things that happen to people. He and his wife, also a physician, have four boys and enjoy doing anything outdoors.
