Big Sky Economic Development sticking with proposed med school after Billings Clinic backs out
Big Sky Economic Development will continue its efforts with developers proposing a $78 million for-profit medical school on Billings West End, a day after the state’s largest hospital, Billings Clinic, pulled out of the project.
Big Sky officials said in a Thursday news release that they’ve spoken with leaders of Rocky Vista University and Dr. Andy Sussman, the CEO of its parent company, Medforth Global Healthcare Education after Billings Clinic’s announcement.
The RVU team members shared deep regrets and in no way meant to hurt or disparage any group or individual. That is not who they are as a company, or as individuals, and they expressed that directly to me during our conversation,” said Steve Arveschoug, director of Big Sky Economic Development.
