Maryland-based system board chair, nine others resign over dispute

Baltimore Sun, August 22, 2008

The board chairman and nine other directors have resigned from the University of Maryland Medical System, and the remaining members installed new leadership at the system that oversees hospitals in Baltimore and around the state. The moves follow disagreements between some board members and Gov. Martin O'Malley over what they perceive as the governor's attempt to politicize the board and also between physicians and former Chief Executive Officer Edmond F. Notebaert over concerns that he ignored their interests. The turmoil has clouded the future of the University of Maryland Medical System, which is an important economic driver in the state.
