City Council to Memorial Health board: Resign or be fired

The Gazette, May 3, 2012

The Colorado Springs City Council gave Memorial Health System's board an ultimatum Tuesday: resign or be fired. After meeting in executive session for 1 ½ hours, the council voted 7-0 to ask the city-owned hospital's Board of Trustees to resign voluntarily by 5 p.m. Wednesday or be removed from office. Council members Bernie Herpin and Brandy Williams were absent. The council's request comes after the board voted to give outgoing Memorial CEO Dr. Larry McEvoy a $1.15 million separation agreement that includes $1 million in severance pay, a 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid and $20,000 to help find a new job.
