The board of the embattled Broward Health public hospital system, in Florida, decided Feb. 10 —despite the objections of its chairman—to hold a private meeting to discuss an FBI investigation into the system, according to the Sun Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Broward Health, formerly the North Broward Hospital District, is one of the 10 largest health systems in the U.S. The system’s management has been embroiled in charges of widespread corruption for months.

Modern Healthcare reported that the internal battle is the “latest in a string of challenges and controversies facing the system. The system’s CEO, Nabil El Sanadi, killed himself last month. The system reportedly faces state and federal investigations. And in September, Broward agreed to pay the government $69.5 million to settle allegations it illegally paid doctors for referrals.”
