West Penn Allegheny's interim CEO says he may step down
West Penn Allegheny Health System's embattled interim chief executive, Keith Ghezzi, could be gone next week. Ghezzi said his relationship with executives at health insurer Highmark Inc. is "fractured," and he admitted that some West Penn Allegheny doctors are unhappy with his leadership. He said his relationship with Highmark was strained because the insurer expected him to run West Penn Allegheny as it ordered instead of the way the system's board wanted. He also had difficulty in working with John Paul, Highmark's executive in charge of building a $1 billion provider network.
