Arizona governor calls for removal of Hacienda HealthCare board, slams protection of ex-CEO

PHOENIX – Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey called for the removal of Hacienda HealthCare’s board of directors, saying he had no confidence in the leadership at an institution where an incapacitated woman was raped and went into labor before staff members knew she was pregnant.

Ducey’s comments Friday came the day after an Arizona Republic investigation detailed how Hacienda’s former CEO kept his job despite years of sexual harassment and bullying complaints. 

“I am sickened by what’s been disclosed about the rape and subsequent childbirth by a disabled woman at Hacienda HealthCare,” Ducey said in a series of strongly worded comments on Twitter. “And, I’m appalled by the latest disclosure about the senior leadership’s behavior and the lack of action by its board of directors.”
