Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital generator concerns weren't passed along, former CEO testifies

New Orleans Times Picayune, January 18, 2010

Completing his testimony and cross-examination in a wrongful-death trial stemming from his tenure as CEO of Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital, Larry Graham said that he was not aware that previous executives at the hospital had documented their concerns about a generator system that would later flood during Hurricane Katrina. The system would fail for 18 hours beginning Aug. 29, 2005, after a first-floor fuel pump flooded and cut off the diesel supply from a 10,000-gallon tank to a smaller "day tank" and generator atop a roof on the Read Boulevard campus, the New Orleans Times Picayune reports.
