Former San Bernardino County Administrative Officer Mark Uffer has taken a position as the interim chief executive officer of the Colorado River Medical Center in Needles.

Uffer said he received a telephone call last Thursday from hospital board member Linda Kidd, informing him the job at the 25-bed acute care hospital was his if he wanted it.

“I believe I can help the city and help the hospital develop a little restored pride in the organization,” Uffer, 57, said Monday.

Uffer was fired as the county’s top administrator in November. He is also the former administrator of Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton.
