The Medical Center has been the center of controversy for about a year-and-a-half - a controversy that led to a number of resignations of hospital staff, culminating in the resignation of CEO Mel Snow, which was confirmed by the board at its regular meeting on Tuesday.
A contract the board had to buy Snow
out of for a reported $400,000 to $500,000.
Each member of the board replied in turn.
James Jens summed up the sentiment of several board members saying they realized, perhaps late, that Snow
had to go for the community to move forward and the advice of their lawyers was they could not fire Snow
for cause, and a lawsuit would have cost three to four times as much as the severance package.
