Hospital's decision on Levy faces Massachusetts AG review

Boston Globe, May 14, 2010

The Massachusetts attorney general's office said that it will review whether the board of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center appropriately handled a "lapse of judgment" by its chief executive, Paul Levy, and whether charitable funds were misspent because of a personal relationship he had with an employee. During a meeting, the board voted to send Attorney General Martha Coakley a letter, asking her to review its actions regarding Levy. Those actions included a decision last week to fine Levy $50,000 for showing poor judgment in his relationship with a female employee, but the board has not disclosed details of its investigation or what Levy's lapse of judgment entailed.
