Slack tide comes to Broward Health

In Broward Health, Corporate Management, Original Content by Dan LewisLeave a Comment

Broward Health will start 2019 with a political and practical slack tide, a short period that is completely unstressed.  This period occurs before the newly elected state and local political, and governmental forces are settled with their organizational transitions.   I followed Broward Health’s activities generally since 1996 and intently since 2011.  Never during that time have I seen a time …

Wow, September 12th – another full day of meetings at Broward Health. My last article was over a month ago, and since that time there have been two all-day Broward Health Board and committee meeting(September 12th & 26th).  I recorded and posted to YouTube both days of meetings.  There were some remarkable moments in these recordings but even more remarkable …

Broward Health – Vote for anyone but Rick Scott

In Broward Health, Original Content by Dan Lewis1 Comment

How do you hold a Board, that is politically appointed by the Governor, accountable?  Embarrassment without a credible threat of removal goes just so far for Board members who too often care little for their reputations. Since 2012, I have attended most Broward Health Board meetings, and been writing articles published here and in my blogs www.BrwdHealth.com and DanLewisReport.com. My …

No longer Broward Health, now it Barrett’s Broward Legal While working on some other Broward Health articles, I awoke to find the following “Broward Legal”  ‘contact’ message to me from a former Broward Health physician.  I found the message so striking, on point and exactly right that I had to immediately make it into a post.  While the contact was …

5/30/18 Broward Health Marathon Board Meetings A lot is going on at Broward Health.  Some of it is good.  Some of it, not so much.  Probably the biggest news for a public oversight perspective is the Governor’s latest appointment of Ray Berry.  While the Governor still needs to appoint two more commissioners to the Board, based on the performance of …

This week, a judge struck down Florida Governor Rick Scott’s suspension of David DiPietro & Darrell Wright and in an ironic twist – the Judge was right. (Scott Wrong to Boot Appointee for Malfeasance-Judge Rules – Miami Herald, Judge-To-Scott-Reinstate-Suspended-Broward-Health-Chairman – Local 10, Di-Pietro-Reinstated – Sun Sentinel)  While any reader of the blog this past year would find ample grounds to …

Broward Health Gawkers!

In Broward Health, Corporate Management, Original Content by Dan Lewis1 Comment

Too often too many of us carefully stand on the sidelines hurling criticisms at the players (in this case usually the Board Members) without offering any constructive solutions to the problems presented. I would like to dedicate this post to some suggestions and perhaps, some superficial arguments on their behalf.  However, do not judge the suggestions merely on my supporting …

David DiPietro’s Raw Deal.

In Broward Health, Corporate Management by Dan LewisLeave a Comment

There is no way to get around it, Florida’s Inspector General and Governor Scott got it wrong when they suspended David DiPietro from his position as Chair of Broward Health! While DiPietro should be concerned about the unfolding Zimmerman Advertising scandal which embroils his wife, recently appointed as Judge and currently running for election, his close friend – Broward County …

Governor Scott’s Board Appointed Incompetent Political Hacks Killing Broward Health!

In Broward Health, Corporate Management by Dan LewisLeave a Comment

Governor Scott’s Board appointed incompetent political hacks are killing Broward Health through corrupt and incompetent improper interference with the management of Broward Health.  It was the root cause of the disastrous ouster of previous CEO Frank Nask, the hurried crowning of Dr. Nabil El Sanadi (perhaps the worst Broward Health CEO in its sordid history), the ouster of an exceptional …
