The suit says physician Badr Idbeis is using confidential information gained through his relationship as chairman, co-chief executive and management committee member of Kansas Heart Hospital.
...The Kansas Heart Hospital petition, filed by Ken Peterson of the law firm of Morris, Laing, Evans, Brock and Kennedy, alleges that Idbeis gained access to confidential information as a result of a "fiduciary relationship" with Kansas Heart Hospital and that his plans to build Kansas Medical Center are based in part on that knowledge.
The suit marks the second time in three years that Idbeis
has faced allegations of violating noncompete agreements.In May 2002, his
former employer, Wichita Surgical Specialists, fired him, citing his
participation in the development of the Kansas Spine Hospital
, which it said could compete with a venture it was considering.
The suit says the Idbeis venture at Andover would be called the Kansas Medical Center
and would be "based in part on the defendant's knowledge of KHH
's confidential information, including the business model and practices, gained as a result of his
special relationship with KHH."
In a second claim, the petition says Idbeis
knew of confidential KHH
business development opportunities and in seeking to build an Andover hospital, acted in a way that "intentionally interfered with the business expectations of KHH."
