LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. - Saddleback Memorial Medical Center recently announced that Liz Bear has been appointed as the new administrator of their San Clemente location.

As an independent consultant, Bear has worked for the US Agency for Internal Development (USAID) and Porter Novelli on social marketing projects in Turkey.
