Presently, Valley Wellbeing is leasing by means of the building Bluebird Realty, LLC. If the county desires to just take it above, they would both will need to sublease from Valley Health and fitness for the remainder of the agreement, which is about two and a half a long time, or they could consider to negotiate with Bluebird to get their possess deal.
