Messy Divorce of Rick Scott and David DiPietro

In Broward Health, Corporate Management, Original Content, Physician Contracts by Dan Lewis2 Comments

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 …

I’m Back With Tidbits!

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

   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 …

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

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

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 …

OMG – Nabil El Sanadi’s First 5 Months!

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

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’ …

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

In Broward Health, Corporate Management, Original Content, Public Records by Dan Lewis3 Comments

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 …

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

In Broward Health, Corporate Management, Original Content by Dan Lewis4 Comments

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 …

Bumbling Inexperience of Dr. Nabil El Sanadi at Committee Meeting

In Broward Health, Corporate Management, Original Content by Dan Lewis3 Comments

It is difficult to judge the actions of the Broward Health Board due to the well-intentioned but bumbling inexperience of Dr. Nabil El Sanadi as CEO evidenced in the Board Finance Committee meeting yesterday (April 23, 2015) attended by all the Board Members.  This meeting was open to the public, but besides me and two others representing the public, the …
