Director Duffy earned a Bachelor and Master of Science Degrees from Brigham Young University, later completing a Master of Business Administration Degree at Gonzaga University. He began his career in health care administration working with hospitals and managing medical practices in Seattle and Coeur d’Alene. This led to creating a medical practice consulting and revenue cycle management business based in Coeur d’Alene. He sold his company in May 2013 after 20 years serving physician practices throughout the West. One year later, the Panhandle Health District hired him as the Health Services Administrator, promoting him in July 2021 to District Director.
Director Duffy and his wife Heather raised six children in North Idaho and are blessed with 14 grandchildren.
