Sound Shore Medical Center gave its chief executive officer two large checks days before he led it into bankruptcy, court records show. Two payments totaling $82,815 are detailed in court papers that also noted John Spicer's biweekly salary of $32,644.24. The June 28 filing in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court showed that Spicer got his regular salary payments May 2 and 16, then two payments totaling $82,815 a little over a week later, on May 24. The hospital's interim chief financial officer and its in-house counsel also received payments May 24. Their payments matched the biweekly salary payments they received May 2 and 16.
