Broward Health board votes to demote acting CEO

The board of Florida's Broward Health has voted to demote its interim CEO back to chief operating officer amid repeated complaints of an unproductive, disorganized atmosphere and lack of long-term physician contracts, according to the Sun Sentinel. The board voted to replace Kevin Fusco with former North Broward Medical Center CEO Pauline Grant. Next month, the board will consider a proposal to fire Lynn Barrett, the hospital's general counsel. In January, Broward Health CEO Nabil El Sanadi committed suicide, leaving the hospital in chaos at the administrative level and prompting rumors the hospital's lawyers obstructed a federal investigation.
