Restructuring team brought in to Maryland med center amid federal investigation

Baltimore Sun, March 16, 2009

Towson, MD-based St. Joseph Medical Center, where three top executives went on leave two weeks ago amid a federal investigation, has brought in an outside "restructuring team" to manage the hospital and ensure that it is not violating federal healthcare laws. Officials at the 354-bed hospital did not elaborate on the restructuring team's role. But Beth O'Brien, who is leading the team, said in the memo that "the overarching goal is to create a compliance program at St. Joseph that parallels the same high standards as our clinical quality."
