Health First Foundation president quickly resigns after arrest in prostitution sting

Terry Mohr, president of Health First Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Rockledge, Fla.-based Health First, was arrested April 20 on charges of soliciting prostitution, according to Florida Today.

Mr. Mohr, 69, was one of 11 men charged in a prostitution sting operation put together by the Brevard Sheriff's Office Special Investigations Unit. He allegedly called a phone number the sheriff's office posted on a website and was recorded agreeing to pay $80 for 30 minutes of sex. Mr. Mohr agreed to meet what turned out to be an undercover officer at a hotel near Palm Shores, Fla., according to the report.

Mr. Mohr was arrested after he entered the hotel room and placed $80 on the counter. The arrest occurred just before 2:30 a.m.

After his arrest, Mr. Mohr resigned from his position at Health First Foundation. He has served as the Foundation's president since February 2014.

"We received Mr. Mohr's resignation from his position within our Foundation," Matt Gerrell, Health First's vice president of public relations told Florida Today. "We respect the privacy of his family during this difficult time."

Health First is a four-hospital system, its largest and flagship hospital being Holmes Regional Medical Center.
