Bill: Atlanta hospital board member can’t be CEO
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 1, 2008
State Rep. Mike Jacobs (R-Atlanta) has filed a bill to prohibit the head of the Grady Memorial Hospital board from also serving as the hospital CEO. The legislation came the day after Grady board chairwoman Pam Stephenson announced the board had fired hospital CEO Otis Story and named her to temporarily replace him at the Atlanta facility. Jacobs called Stephenson's new position "a conflict of interest of epic proportions."
