Hospital CEO facing charges is fired
A New York City hospital executive who has been accused of bribery in a federal corruption investigation has been ousted by his board and replaced by his second in command, the board announced. The executive, David P. Rosen, 63, CEO of MediSys Health Network, was among eight people, including two state legislators, charged last week by federal authorities in Manhattan with participating in bribery schemes. In his case, prosecutors said the scheme revolved around getting favorable treatment from state officials for his healthcare organization. In a statement, the board of MediSys—the nonprofit sponsor of four hospitals, three nursing homes and several neighborhood health centers in Queens and Brooklyn—said it voted to appoint Rosen's second in command, Bruce J. Flanz, to take over Rosen's job as CEO. Flanz, 59, had been the COO at MediSys.
