Powell v. Bear Valley Community Hospital, 072616

Affirming the denial of the superior court's petition for writ of mandate to void the decision by the Board of Directors of a community hospital not to advance a doctor from provisional to active staff membership and reappointment to the hospital's medical staff because his track record included failing to advise patients of injuries suffered during surgery and false representations that he had done so at a previous hospital because a private hospital is not required to provide him a hearing regarding the lapse of his provisional staff privileges, nor do doctors have an absolute right to reappointment.
