Peninsula Hospital's ex-CEO seeks $1.2M from now shuttered hospital
Peninsula's former CEO Robert Levine is seeking more than $1.2 million from the Far Rockaway facility in bankruptcy court, the Daily News has learned. The figure is part of three separate claims filed by Levine in October, which demand $800,400 for severance pay and more than $427,000 for termination of contract, documents show. Levine made an unceremonious exit from Peninsula in September, but didn't stay unemployed for long. He was appointed chief operating officer at Flushing Hospital Medical Center two months later, angering long-time employees at Peninsula who were dealing with the aftermath of Levine's tenure at the helm.
