Beth Israel board fines Levy $50,000 for lapses in judgment

Boston Globe, May 4, 2010

The board of Boston-based Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center imposed a $50,000 fine on chief executive Paul Levy for undisclosed lapses of judgment in a personal relationship with a female employee and said it will consider the matter in setting his salary for next year. Board chairman Stephen Kay said in a written statement that "outside counsel" found that Levy did not violate hospital policies, but that "over time the situation created an improper appearance and became a distraction within the hospital."
