Hospital board chair resigns following $2.5M lawsuit filed by CEO over termination

THE CANADIAN PRESS | posted Friday, Jan 15th, 2021

The chairwoman of the board of directors of a hospital in London has resigned a day after its terminated CEO sued the facility.

Dr. Paul Woods was let go this week amid questions about his travels to the U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The London Health Sciences Centre says Amy Walby’s resignation is “not an admission of wrongdoing.”

Woods says Walby approved his trips several times last year.

His lawyer says he alleges the hospital network defamed and terminated him “in bad faith.”

Woods is claiming a total of $2.5 million in damages for the alleged wrongful termination, defamation and breach of human rights.
