Colorado: Park Hospital Board of Directors facing recall effort
Park Hospital Board President Diana Van Der Ploeg is facing a recall effort seemingly over the dismissal of longtime staffers, the contract for Estes Park Medical Center Interim CEO Mark Gregson and the hiring of a management company without board approval. There are also questions of whether Van Der Ploeg can serve a third consecutive term. Petitions with 458 signatures were sent demanding the removal of Van Der Ploeg and Gregson, but these are not the real petitions. Petitioners claim they have 300 valid signatures on another petition.
