The week began with a public records lawsuit against Broward Health, then came news that the vacationing Senior Vice president Broward Health personal director Dionne Wong had resigned, then CEO of Broward Health’s flagship hospital – Broward Medical, was forced out.  Although I do not, as yet have copies of their severance agreements – I suspect that they were consistent …

I attended the June 28th 2017 -Broward Health Board meeting.  Last year we said ‘things can’t go on like this’ at Broward Health, and they didn’t, they got worse.

Broward Health Gawkers!

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 …

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 …

Some Broward Health board members, and senior staff (in particular, clueless CEO – Dr. Nabil El Sanadi) ostensibly wants the public to think that what they do is none of anyone’s business and view the sunshine laws and transparency mandated by statute as simply an aggravation they must grudgingly and not happily endure. When these few seemingly bad actors hang out …

Historically, Florida’s Broward Health was used a cash register for the politically connected where everything from lucrative land deals, insider supply & service procurement’s, to outrageous physician contracts given to cliques of gate-keeping physicians were the rule and not the exception for our public hospital.   Typified by a revolving door of politically appointed CEO’s more interested in their next position …

In September 2014, I began my Florida Broward Health series with my “Path to Professional Competent Leadership” article.  My “It’s Our Hospital” article followed in October as the second of a planned three article series.  My final series planned for December promised to discuss why Florida’s Broward Health protects physician’s income at the expense of providing health care – but …
