Modern healthcare

Clifford Barnes, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences Practice in the Washington, DC and New York offices, was quoted in Modern Healthcare magazine on legal issues facing Rodney Miller, who quit as president of the National Association of Health Services Executives a few days after the release of an audit report cataloging his alleged misappropriation of hospital funds for personal use while chief executive officer of a public hospital in the Virgin Islands from 2002 to 2007.

In the article, titled, "Miller a nonissue, execs say: former CEO's legal woes will have no impact," Barnes said the decision to resign was Miller's, and he praised Miller's performance during a fast rise through NAHSE's ranks, particularly his success persuading its board to hire their first full-time executive director. "There is a sense of disappointment that it happened at all," Barnes said of the situation, which he described as Miller's personal challenge.
