Land deal will increase public access and benefit Shodair

A plan that's over two years in the making is in its final step. Shodair Children's Hospital was given an almost 6,000-acre plot of land in the Snowy Mountains several years ago. They were given the land after the previous owner passed away and Shodair CEO Craig Aasved knew immediately they were going to repurpose it.

“It's a win-win because the proceeds of this go into our new hospital building and then this just gives a whole lot more access to Montanans, which has been our goal all along. We weren't going to keep the land because that's not the business we're in, but we wanted to be able to sell it where it was going to be public property.”

The Montana Fish & Wildlife Commission unanimously approved its sale. Aasved said it was for a total of $8.22 million. All that's left is for the Montana Land Board to approve the sale..
