- Accepting the resignation of Gregory Calliste as Luis Hospital CEO, effective Aug. 9.
There had been some controversy at the district level after Calliste's departure. Calliste announced his resignation in early July, saying he would leave the job in mid-October. That same month, he went on sick leave from his position at Luis Hospital. On Aug. 10, Calliste went to work at St. Luke's Hospital in New York City, although he continued to collect the sick leave pay from Luis for about eight weeks while he worked in New York. Calliste has told The Daily News that during that time, he worked for Luis Hospital by providing consulting services for acting CEO Darice Plaskett and that the failure to change his pay category from sick leave to annual leave was simply an oversight. The Luis Hospital board last month approved a motion making his resignation effective the day before he went to work in New York, and the territorial board approved that action on Friday. The person Calliste chose was Plaskett.


Luis Hospital CEO Gregory Calliste ended his job at Luis and went to work at a hospital in New York on Aug. 10.
The end of his employment was not the end of his paychecks, however. The Luis Hospital board paid Calliste "sick leave" for two months after his job was over, after he was out of the Virgin Islands, after he was working - not home sick - at his new job elsewhere. There's more. The Luis board also paid Calliste a $1,800 monthly housing allowance - for two months after he had moved to New York. There's still more. The Luis board paid Calliste a $300 monthly car allowance - for two months after he no longer lived, or drove, in the Virgin Islands.


Luis Hospital continued to pay Chief Executive Officer Gregory Calliste for sick leave while Calliste was working full-time as chief administrative officer at St. Luke's Hospital in New York City for two months.
The St. Croix hospital also paid Calliste's housing and car allowances through October even though Calliste started working in New York in August. Calliste - who announced his resignation from Luis Hospital in early July, saying he planned to leave the post in mid-October to take the New York position - was paid for sick leave from July 16 to Oct. 9, Luis Hospital board chairman Carmelo Rivera said. Calliste went to work at St. Luke's Hospital on Aug. 10, said Jim Mandler, a spokesman for Continuum Health Partners, a New York hospital system that includes St. Luke's. "I have been actually working for Juan Luis Hospital, doing everything I would ordinarily do, but doing it remotely," Calliste said. He said his idea was to have a smooth transition, with no confusion at Luis Hospital about who was in charge. During those two months while he was simultaneously employed as a top executive by the two hospitals, he consulted with senior staff at Luis "on almost a day-to-day basis" and responded to all questions from Luis Hospital, Calliste said. He also said that the continued sick leave pay was an oversight and that as soon as he realized his pay was still coming to him as sick leave pay, he had it changed to annual paid leave. "Once we realized it, we corrected it," Calliste said. "We changed it to annual leave. Dual employment was never an issue. Fifty percent of the staff at Juan Luis Hospital have other jobs." Calliste started as Luis Hospital CEO in January 2004 with an annual salary of $165,000. In addition to regular benefits that Luis employees receive, Calliste also had a contract, signed when he started in 2004, that gave him special benefits, including an $1,800 monthly housing allowance and a $300 monthly automobile allowance. Calliste received that housing and automobile allowance through October. That means that Calliste collected approximately $31,153 from Luis Hospital while he worked as chief administrative officer at St. Luke's. It also means he collected $3,600 in housing allowance and $600 in a vehicle allowance from Luis Hospital for that two-month period. In an interview last week, Calliste gave this account of events: He said he needed to have back surgery after he exacerbated an existing back injury when he fell on the job in 2008. He wanted to get the problem fixed before he went to work at St. Luke's, so he took the sick leave from Luis Hospital to have surgery in July. "The expectation was that I was going to be out three months," he said, noting that a leave form for three months of sick leave was completed. However, Calliste said, his doctor cleared him to return to work on Aug. 6, with the understanding that he would require outpatient physical therapy through the end of September. Calliste said that once his doctor cleared him to work, "I informed the board I was OK; that I was well. Calliste said he went ahead and went to work at St. Luke's on Aug. 10. He said that he realized in late September that his Luis Hospital salary was being paid from sick leave and had it changed to annual leave. "It was really an oversight. It was nothing I was doing deliberately to cheat anybody. I would not try to defraud the hospital in any way," Calliste said. In a follow-up interview on Tuesday, Rivera said Calliste had provided the board with information in late October about his August start date at St. Luke's. Calliste said on Friday that he accomplished much for Luis Hospital during his tenure there - and that he had accumulated hundreds of hours in annual and sick leave time. "If you look at who owes who, you will see that Juan Luis probably still owes me," Calliste said.


Gregory Calliste told his staff on Monday that he intends to resign his post as Luis Hospital chief executive officer by the end of the year.
That announcement came in a prepared statement the hospital released Tuesday afternoon. However, the statement did not provide specifics about when exactly Calliste plans to tender his resignation. The release indicated that Calliste had accepted "an opportunity that is more consistent with his career goals and objectives." Luis Hospital board chairman Carmelo Rivera said Tuesday afternoon that the board had not, at that point, received any resignation notice from Calliste. If Calliste submits his resignation at the meeting this afternoon, the board would, as a whole, have to make a decision about whether to accept it or negotiate, Rivera said. Calliste did not return Daily News messages on Monday. The statement from the hospital said that Calliste made the announcement at a general staff meeting Monday and reiterated his love for the hospital and for the St. Croix community. It went on to say that Calliste expressed sadness to be leaving when there are "so many initiatives occurring" at the hospital. Calliste also told the staff that he would be available as a resource to them as the institution moves forward, according to the release.
