German Medical Institute Director Will Lose Job
23 January 2010 12:44 pm
Citing a wish to avoid distractions such as disputed expense accounts, the board of the German Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care has decided to not renew the contract of embattled director Peter Sawicki. "The excellent work of the institute should not be burdened" with discussions about administrative procedures, the board said in a statement. The board met on Wednesday to decide whether to extend Sawicki's contract, which ends 31 August, but initially could not reach an agreement and delayed its decision until Friday.
