He was 57... "Ron's death is a tremendous loss to all of us - his family, his patients, his friends and colleagues and all of medicine," said Dr. Anmol S. Mahal, president of the California Medical Association. "Ron was always an example of what a doctor should be, operating his wound care clinic, his practice, treating patients in the hospital, all the while serving his patients and colleagues through his advocacy for the California Medical Association."

Dr Bassanger was on the charter committee of the Inland Empire RHIO. He was a visionary in regard to the importance of HIE and EMRs. We shall all miss his wisdom.
