Officials furious over Atlanta hospital CEO’s deal
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, July 10, 2008
Several Georgia lawmakers and officials at Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital expressed outrage over a two-year, $1.2 million contract awarded interim hospital CEO Pam Stephenson. Some are calling for a state investigation and her resignation from hospital leadership posts. Stephenson's contract was sealed shortly before the Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority was to hand over control of the hospital to a new nonprofit corporation. The corporation has now announced four finalists for the CEO position, and Stephenson was not among them. Officials have blasted Stephenson's contract, saying it was deliberately crafted away from public scrutiny.
