Surgeon sues Melbourne, FL, hospital
Richard Hynes, MD, the chief medical officer at Holmes Regional Medical Center, is suing the Melbourne, FL-based hospital's board of directors for violating hospital bylaws and potentially compromising patient care. On behalf of the hospital's medical staff, Hynes alleges that the board violated its own bylaws, which form a contract under Florida law between the hospital and doctors and allied health professionals who work at the hospital. "This is all about ensuring quality of patient care," said Richard Levenstein, the attorney for Hynes, the president of the medical staff, and the hospital's estimated 584 physicians.
