Atlanta hospital CEO stands firm
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, April 14, 2008
Since Pam Stephenson assumed the top role at Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital, critics have said she lacks experience and qualifications and brings with her conflicts of interest. Some people have been pushing to oust her from Grady, and Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle said Stephenson is "obviously unqualified" and exercising "personal greed" in pursuit of the $600,000-a-year job. Rather than stepping aside, however, Stephenson is poised to step up as a candidate in the national search for a permanent Grady CEO.
