Former staff file suit against St. Vincent's
GREENWICH VILLAGE -- Former employees of now-defunct St. Vincent's Hospital say the 160-year-old Manhattan institution was destroyed by mismanagement - including expenses like a $278,000 golf outing.
According to a lawsuit filed Monday in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, hospital executives also spent $17 million for management consultants and $104 million on other, unspecified expenses.
The Greenwich Village facility closed in April with a debt topping $1 billion dollars.
Doctors and nurses charge that 10 top executives had salaries of $1 million each as the hospital was headed for bankruptcy.
St. Vincent's was founded by the Sisters of Charity, a Roman Catholic order of nuns.
