Mysteries surrounding massive Memorial Health System severance could endure
As Colorado Springs tries to reconcile how the former CEO of Memorial Health System walked away with a $1.15 million separation package that city officials tried to block amid public outrage, one of the biggest mysteries is who knew what and when. It wasn't until the terms of the agreement were made public and began to garner protest that city officials started to make noise. The seven-figure payout could lead to policy changes. Some council members say they want to ensure that no other municipal board has the same kind of unchecked power as Memorial's, and Mayor Steve Bach has called for a governance review of all city-owned institutions.
