Paul Levy, Beth Israel hospital chief, sorry for poor judgment

Boston Globe, April 27, 2010

Paul Levy, the chief executive of Boston-based Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, has acknowledged unspecified "lapses of judgment in a personal relationship," prompting the hospital’s board to issue a statement declaring that it was "disappointed in these circumstances" but also expressing "unanimous continued confidence" in Levy's leadership. Levy, who has run the hospital since 2002, is widely known in the state both for turning around the hospital's troubled finances in the early years of his tenure and for his outspoken nature, the Boston Globe reports.
