Broward Health Marathon 12 Hour Meeting – Many New Revelations.

Broward Health Marathon 12 Hour Meeting – Many New Revelations.

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…

INDICTMENTS AND BREACHES OF ETHICS ARE ENDEMIC AT BROWARD HEALTH

INDICTMENTS AND BREACHES OF ETHICS ARE ENDEMIC AT BROWARD HEALTH

In the sometimes bizarro world of Broward Health, breaches of ethics and a Civil War is brewing just below the surface.  One side is Lynn Barrett, Broward Health’s Corporate Counsel. Remarkably it appears the other side is CEO, Bev Capasso, recently emboldened by her loosely negotiated employment contract.  Broward Health’s Board of Commissioners seems to split among the two camps.  Then there was the appointment of the newest Board member, Commissioner Ray Berry.  He was impressive at his first set of public meetings…

Broward Health March 2018 Board Meetings

Broward Health March 2018 Board Meetings

Before I begin my comments about last week’s Broward Health’s meetings, I want to explain how I excerpt the  Meeting Agenda Packets.  While I am recording the meeting, I make every attempt to get copies of any and all the documents the Board or Committee is reviewing and on which they base their decisions.  I then scan all these documents specifically excluding the voluminous medical staff credentialing sections and post them as Agenda Meeting Excerpts. My Meeting Impressions: HR Committee…

Feckless Broward Health Board Gulps the Cool-Aid

Feckless Broward Health Board Gulps the Cool-Aid

I’m trying to understand why I am so angry tonight after spending most of the afternoon and early evening at a pair of Broward Health Board Meetings. I don’t think that the fact the Board, after a transparent charade, would choose now indicted and under an ethical cloud Interim CEO Capasso as Broward Health’s permanent CEO made me angry.  After all, last year I wrote an article “Barrett Continues to Purge Top Broward Health Employees,” and I predicted that the…

I’m Back With Tidbits!

I’m Back With Tidbits!

   My last post was two months ago, and a lot has happened since then!                 Apart from vacation and family time, after my last post I wanted to step back a little and contemplate my end game with this blog.  I never intended this blog to be without purpose and to simply dissolve into article after article highlighting the inexcusable and indefensible conduct of Dr. El Sanadi and his board.  After over 35 years of public policy experience, it…

Nabil El Sanadi – Broward Health’s Million Dollar CEO!

Nabil El Sanadi – Broward Health’s Million Dollar CEO!

Dr. Nabil El Sanadi, crying poverty, is Broward Health’s highest paid CEO in history with over one million dollars in “active” compensation by including his “part-time” work and his full-time position as CEO.  This for a person who has never managed a hospital let alone one of the largest public hospital systems in the nation. Last April 2015, I wrote two posts about Dr. El Sanadi’s appointment and contract as Broward Health’s CEO.  See “The Best Broward Health CEO contract…

Bombshell Broward Health Non-Agenda Item stinks of insider Double Dealing

Bombshell Broward Health Non-Agenda Item stinks of insider Double Dealing

At Wednesday’s Broward Health Board Meeting (May 27/2015), it was announced that  corporate counsel Sam Goren, named partner of the highly respected governmental law firm of Goren, Cherof, Doody & Ezrol, P.A., , had given notice that he would resign as Broward Health’s corporate counsel.  No reason was given for this sudden resignation but it appeared to have been seemingly orchestrated by CEO Dr. El Sanadi and Board chairperson David DiPietro. Following the ouster of Sam Goren,, a non-agenda item to…

OMG – Nabil El Sanadi’s First 5 Months!

OMG – Nabil El Sanadi’s First 5 Months!

I’ve taken a little time since my last post to talk with a few Broward Health Board members, some senior Broward Health physicians, and some notably well informed people who work for or with Broward Health.  The consensus picture they paint of Dr. Nabil El Sanadi’s first 5 months as CEO is peppered by his apparent arrogant administrative miss-steps, ‘discretionary’ spending seemingly more befitting a drunken sailor, a rumored lack of confidence vote by the medical staff, and ostensible team…

Just say No – How Not to Cancel a Meeting – Part 4

Just say No – How Not to Cancel a Meeting – Part 4

Dr. El Sanadi’s response to my public records request (see Part 3) flies in the face of his public claims of transparency as Broward Health’s CEO.  My El Sanadi public records request can be seen here. Soon after I submitted my public records request to Dr. El Sanadi, Broward Health through their corporate counsel’s office hired a law firm to represent and respond on his behalf.  Although this is common, and given his position as CEO entirely appropriate, it did…

Just say No – How Not to Cancel a Meeting – Part 3

In “Just say No – How Not to Cancel a Meeting – Part 1” you learned that there were a number of initiatives underway to improve Broward Health’s services at the time David DiPietro, the Board Chair, seemingly orchestrated the ouster of Frank Nask followed by DiPietro’s apparently predetermined CEO choice and his wife’s fellow medical board member, Dr. Nabil El Sanadi as Broward Health’s new CEO.  See  “The Best Broward Health CEO contract politics can buy!”  and “Has the Office of…
