Halifax Health Attorney Resigns

The top lawyer for Halifax Health, Dave Davidson, resigned Monday, according to The Daytona Beach News-Journal.

No reason was given for his resignation, but it comes just weeks after the hospital system settled remaining claims in a whistleblower lawsuit that cost $120 million in legal and settlement fees, the News-Journal reports.

At a March 9 meeting of the Halifax Health Board of Commissioners, Davidson said he took “full ownership” of the contracts involved in the lawsuit, according to the News-Journal.

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.
