SPH CEO Woodin reaches agreement with former employer

South Peninsula Hospital CEO Joe Woodin has reached a settlement with his former employer, Martha’s Vineyard Hospital.

According to an Oct. 1 article in the Martha’s Vineyard Gazette, Massachusetts, the hospital resolved a dispute after Woodin filed a breach of contract action against the hospital in October 2017. The hospital abruptly fired Woodin in June 2017 after he had been on the job 13 months. The Gazette said that according to Woodin’s employment agreement, disputes would be settled by arbitration. Both sides reached a resolution through mediation. Woodin told the Gazette the agreement included financial compensation, but he did not provide further details.
