July 26, 2018 – At Broward Health-
12 Hours of meeting videos.
The twelve hour day of non-stop Broward Health Board meetings began with a 9:00 am Finance Committee meeting and ended after 8:30 pm with the Jun/July 2018 combined “Regular” Board Meeting. In between, there was an explosive special workshop on CEO Beverly Capasso’s 50% incentive program (for her $1.3 million dollar compensation package). A special presentation of a recommended “balanced scorecard” which would be used to trigger bonus compensation to some 300 tier 1 & 2 management Broward Health employees followed the CEO bonus workshop. Finally, the day entered the big Jun/July 2018 charter mandated Board Meeting.
There were many, many important new revelations throughout the meeting, whose candor and discussion was admittedly refreshing. So much so, that I have over five pages of cryptic handwritten notes that I will be writing about over the next day or so. In the meantime, the following are my meeting videos and the agenda materials I was given. It should be noted, some documents referenced by one or more of the commissioners during one or more of the meetings has not been provided and part of my notes are for a future public records request.
As a general note, although there were many disturbing issues that were disclosed and discussed – this board (the majority) and the executive staff continues to appear to be competent, candid and forthcoming (except for General Council Lynn Barrett who continues to be a significant obstacle to real progress at Broward Health). It is a welcome change and about time. More about that in my coming articles tomorrow.
Finance Committee Meeting
Note the detailed discussion between Commissioner Berry and Finance Director Alan Goldsmith. Although there was some disagreement, it was detailed and professional suggesting legitimate confidence in the Board understanding its oversight responsibility with a more granular appreciation for the financial challenges at Broward Health.7/26/18 Finance Committee Agenda Packet
Special Board Meeting: CEO Beverly Capasso Bonus
See Ms. Capasso’s attorney misrepresent some comparative salary levels and quote a Miami Herald article pointing out that the other CEO’s are men and Ms. Capasso is a woman. See Commissioner Berry’s reaction.Public Comment – Referenced Mimi Herald Article on CEO Pay
The discussion was lively and long – so the video is in two parts:
CEO Metrics Workshop – Part 1
CEO Metrics Workshop – Part 2
Balanced Scorecard for Management Incentive Compensation Plan Special Board Meeting
Because of the length of the CEO Bonus Compensation workshop, the special meeting for management Tier 1 & 2 (about 300 employees) we shortened to a presentation and a referral back to the HR committee.July 26, 2018, Broward Health Special Board Meeting Agenda on Balanced Scorecard
