Paul Levy, the first director of the MWRA, writes it's pretty silly to let Boston dump snow into a snow farm right on the water but not let it just push the snow into the harbor - when it's going to melt into the water anyway.
The state Attorney General's office says the $50,000 fine levied by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's board of directors against CEO Paul Levy was punishment enough. But the AG's office, which found no abuse of hospital funds, also criticized the directors for not putting a stop to the relationship earlier, even though some board members might have known about it as early as 2003:
Look for Levy interviews in local media through next week as he goes public and says he won't resign as CEO at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He links to three interviews so far; the Herald has the most details on the woman in question and her role at Beth Israel (more specifically, its Needham hospital).
The Boston Business Journal reports the board of trustees at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has censured CEO Paul Levy over that inappropriate relationship with an underling and fined him $50,000. Also, one trustee resigned, although he wouldn't say why.'
Exactly what, we don't know, but the "lapses of judgment in a personal relationship" were serious enough to warrant a daylong meeting of the hospital's board of trustees, at which Paul Levy apologized, the Herald reports. The Globe also reports.
