San Benito Logo_w:skyA bidder for the San Benito CISD on-site primary health care clinic continues to raise concerns regarding the recent selection process.

Andy Bonner, President of Healthcare2U, formerly known as Business Healthcare Solutions, alleges irregularities concerning the district’s hiring of a consultant to evaluate the clinic bids. Specifically, Bonner said he was notified by an anonymous “SBCISD insider” via email of the district’s hiring of William “Bill” Rusteberg, an insurance agent for Valley Baptist Medical Center, to evaluate said bids.

The Board of Trustees on June 10 unanimously approved Valley Baptist’s bid at the recommendation of the finance committee – this following Bonner’s attempt to share his concerns with the Board during public comment. It was the selection of Valley Baptist over his company, Healthcare2U, which prompted Bonner to seek legal counsel.
