Physician claims to have been illegally fired from Dartmouth-Hitchcock


LEBANON — A physician alleges that her firing from Dartmouth-Hitchcock 14 months ago was illegal discrimination based on her post-traumatic stress disorder, and is suing the healthcare system.

Lacey Colligan, a pediatrician and expert in issues of patient safety, says she was fired hours after an exchange with the wife of a top Dartmouth-Hitchcock executive right outside their home, reports the Valley News.

Colligan says her behavior in that exchange was influenced by her PTSD, and her sudden firing violates federal laws. A spokesman for Dartmouth-Hitchcock has denied the charges.

The wife of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock executive allegedly encountered Colligan as she was taking pictures outside the executive's home. The lawsuit said Colligan was flustered with PTSD, and was unjustly terminated.

Both sides expressed willingness to see the case all the way to trial.
