North Memorial suspends CEO Cress
David Cress, the hospital executive arrested and charged with engaging in prostitution this week, has been suspended indefinitely without pay as president and chief executive of North Memorial Health Care, officials said late Thursday.
Loren Taylor, chairman of the parent of North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, has been named interim CEO effective immediately, officials said. Robert Potts, the board's current vice chairman, will replace Taylor as chairman. Taylor will also replace Cress as chairman of North Memorial's hospital in Maple Grove.
Cress, 60, was one of about a dozen men arrested at a Richfield hotel during a daylong vice operation. He was released from jail Wednesday and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 15 on a misdemeanor charge.
