Ex-HMA Leader Sues for $, Jet Access

Former Health Management Associates Chairman William Schoen is suing the chain and its new corporate owner for benefits it had promised, the Naples Daily News reports.

Tennessee-based Community Health Systems Inc. bought HMA in January. The lawsuit Schoen filed says HMA - and now Community Health - failed to honor the agreement and executive retirement plan which included millions of dollars and access to the company jet, the Daily News reports.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
