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 Indictments – Booyah!

Originally posted on my Broward Health Blog on December 18th, 2017.

Broward Health – lipstick on a pig

Broward Health – lipstick on a pig

It’s Black and White On the one hand, Broward Health interim CEO Paulene Grant, was accused by a physician of indirectly benefiting from an alleged kickback scheme involving two physicians who are still working at Broward Health.  Allegedly, the accusing physician had been denied hospital rotation privileges due to peer review action (bad physician). Notably, apparently Lynn Barrett, Broward Health Corporate Council hired outside council as an interim compliance officer who made a determination that Pauline Grant did not, in…

Messy Divorce of Rick Scott and David DiPietro

Messy Divorce of Rick Scott and David DiPietro

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 not only suspend but even remove Mr. David DiPietro and Mr. Darrell Wright for improper conduct as board members, the…

Broward Health Gawkers!

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 superficial arguments that by necessity must be uncharacteristically short.  Each suggestion could be a post entirely in itself. Governmental Representation…

David DiPietro’s Raw Deal.

David DiPietro’s Raw Deal.

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 Commissioner Chip Lamarca, and himself in troubling conduct – based on what I know, DiPietro was certainly not obstructing any…

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

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

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 governmental attorney Sam Goren, and the furious replacement of senior staff competency with remarkable mediocrity.   Over the last year and…

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…
