Hospital Board Considers Affiliation
Big Bear Grizzly

The Bear Valley Community Healthcare District heard presentations by two larger hospital organizations on Nov. 5. The district is considering affiliating with a larger group to expand the hospital’s resources. “There’s a give and take,” Wade Sturgeon, CFO and COO of BVCHD, said during the presentation. Sturgeon explained that the district wants to find a group that will benefit Big Bear’s hospital, but they also need to be able to offer business that would be attractive enough for a larger organization to want to take on.
