We are learning as one agency after another investigates San Bernardino County’s hospital, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC), that the place is falling apart.

There are several reasons for this situation but perhaps the most important is the fact that a hospital of this size needs a full-time medical director.  I believe we already have a full-time medical director, Dr. Dev Gnanadev.

The problem is that Dr. Gnanadev wears a few other hats and cannot dedicate himself to providing medical director services full time.  He is also Chairman of Surgery which means he is administratively responsible for all surgical services except anesthesia and orthopedics, which happens to be the two contracts that he is trying to cancel with the intent that he will have the new groups report to him as Chairman of Surgery (note not Medical Director) with the intent that if he is replaced as Medical Director he will still be in charge of ALL surgical services.
