Cleared by the state attorney general of misusing funds, Hub hospital honcho Paul Levy is now feeling heat from the nation’s most powerful women’s group, which is demanding that his board sack him over his controversial relationship with a former female subordinate.
“We’re very concerned that the board knew about this and failed to take action,” Christina Knowles, Bay State director of the National Organization for Women, told the Herald. “A slap on the wrist is highly inadequate, and being terminated is the most appropriate action. Anything less is unacceptable.”
In May, the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center board of directors fined Levy $50,000 for what they called “a serious lapse in judgment” regarding his “personal relationship with a former employee,” which “created an improper appearance and became a distraction within the hospital.”
