Hamilton, MT - May 21, 2022
Bitterroot Health CEO, John Bishop was awarded by the Bitterroot Valley Chamber of Commerce as the "Business Person of the Year."
“It's an honor to be chosen as the Bitterroot Valley Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year. I wouldn’t be the leader I am without the extraordinary team members who work at Bitterroot Health. When this organization started nearly 100 years ago our declaration was to deliver care for all. That promise means we must ensure that our community has access to every service that we can sustain and deliver in high quality and safe manner. Adding new facilities in Stevensville and Darby, and our upcoming Cancer Infusion Center will continue to fulfill that mission," said Bishop.
Bishop has been a catalyst who truly understands the health needs in our community and has brought Margaret Daly’s vision of “care for all in the Bitterroot Valley” to fruition. With tireless energy, Bishop has continued to bring more services and care options, so our community doesn’t have to leave the valley for care. Patients in more rural areas don’t have to make the choice of not getting certain specialized treatments due to distance.
During his short time as CEO, Bishop has launched multiple vital projects (a new Surgery Center, a new Endoscopy unit for Gastroenterology, a new BH – Stevensville location for primary care, specialty care, rehabilitation services, ambulance bay, a new building in Darby with more services and a retail pharmacy, new Cancer Infusion Center, and rebranded the entire care system.).
During his tenure, Mr. Bishop has transformed the culture; working at Bitterroot Health is an amazing place for both patients and staff to be and to thrive.
