LEBANON, N.H. (AP) — The former director of Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Norris Cotton Cancer Center has filed a lawsuit against the hospital system that says he was forced out of his position.
The Valley News reports the lawsuit, filed Thursday in Grafton Superior Court, alleges that Mark Israel was ousted after he objected to the diversion of funds raised for cancer research.
Israel claims that hospital officials, including Chief Executive James Weinstein, authorized the use of $6 million in donations to instead pay operating expenses.
Neither the hospital nor Dartmouth College formally announced Israel's departure, which he says was retaliation for his whistleblowing.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock spokesman Rick Adams says hospital officials took action "to ensure proper administration, oversight and compliance with required accounting standards and state law." He also denied Israel's allegations of wrongful termination.
