RadioOnFire.com - Gov. Larry Hogan wrapped up a meeting with State House presiding officers and leaders of the University of Maryland Medical System on Wednesday. It comes, after several board members, including Baltimore City Mayor Catherine Pugh stepped away from their positions on the board.
Hogan called the meeting with UMMS Board Chair Stephen Burch, Hospital CEO Robert Chrencik and state house presiding officers. The meeting lasted an hour. Going into it, Senate President Mike Miller said there needs to be an audit and he expects more transparency from the board. Burch spoke briefly after the meeting. He characterized it as very productive. He says all involved are quite concerned with what has transpired. And in vague terms outlined what's next. "We've called a meeting for tomorrow and we'll come up with some conclusions and we'll get back and share it with our leaders," said Burch. Burch says the governor and others offered a number of recommendations, but he did not elaborate.
