No decision from Bartlett Regional Hospital’s Board of Directors on a new management contract.
The board met yesterday (Monday) for more than eight hours – the last three in executive session – without reaching consensus. It’ll take the issue up for further discussion tonight (Tuesday) at its regular monthly meeting.
The first five hours of last night’s special meeting were dedicated to presentations from the three finalists for the hospital’s management contract – current manager Quorum Health Resources, along with Alliant Management Services and PeaceHealth.
It’s the first time in several years that the board has solicited bids for the contract. Quorum’s current deal expires at the end of the year.
Board Chair Kristen Bomengen declined to say whether a decision is close. Tonight’s meeting starts at 5:15 p.m. in the hospital boardroom.
