Massachusetts Attorney General's Report Criticizes Beth Israel Deaconess Board for Allowing CEO's Inappropriate Relationship to Continue

Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has released the results of her office's four-month investigation on how Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center handled CEO Paul Levy's relationship with a female subordinate, according to a Boston Globe report.

Ms. Coakley told The Boston Globe the hospital board should consider whether Paul Levy is fit to continue leading BIDMC. Her office concluded that the relationship "clearly endangered the reputation of the institution and its management," according to the 11-page report.

The attorney general's office found no evidence that the hospital misused charitable funds for the female employee's salary, travel expenses or severance. The employee left BIDMC last fall.

BIDMC's board added anti-fraternization policies to its human resources regulations following the scandal this spring.
