CA county hospital group to award more large retirement packages

Los Angeles Times, February 1, 2012

A Monterey County hospital district, which came under fire last year for giving its chief executive one of the largest public pensions in California history, announced this week that several other top officials are receiving generous retirement packages. The Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System awarded former executive Samuel Downing retirement and severance payments totaling nearly $5 million along with a pension of more than $100,000 a year.
