Roseland Hospital chief resigns

The CEO and president of Roseland Community Hospital has resigned.

Dian Powell turned in her resignation Tuesday, one day after inaccurately blaming the hospital’s financial shortfall on millions in missing payments from the state.

Powell had threatened the hospital would shut down Wednesday, unless it received some last-minute funding.

A hospital vice president now says there are no immediate plans to close following a round of promising talks with Governor Quinn’s office.

But a spokesperson for the governor says the hospital is deep in debt due to serious mismanagement issues.

The hospital has not named Powell’s replacement.
