RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) - Renown Regional Medical Center is doing its part to move ahead following a costly legal battle and an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission.
Four of Renown's top executives have left the hospital - effective immediately. Among them is President/CEO Jim Miller.
After weeks of silence the Renown Health Board announced the changes Tuesday morning, major management changes in the wake of what has been an ugly and costly chapter for the hospital.
President/CEO Jim Miller has stepped down and News 4 is told he was unhappy to have to leave Renown. Three others are also gone after the Renown Health Board hired an outside firm to investigate Renown's recent legal battles and everything that led up to them.
That includes a multi-million dollar payout to a group of cardiologists and an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission.
Board Chairman David Line says the board did not receive critical information from Renown's legal team and he says that why the board did not take action earlier. Line told News 4, "We as a board are putting processes in place. We depend on senior management team including counsel to bring us all the pertinent information so that decisions can be made. That did not happen."
News 4 asked David Line if they considered suing their legal team? Line first said that was not an appropriate question, then he said its something they are considering.
For now there's a new interim CEO in place his name is Donald Sibery, and Jim Miller will still be paid his entire salary for one full year, $916,000 a year.
