Gov. Hogan, Senate President Miller urge UMMS to end any conflicts of interest in 'appalling' deals for board

Gov. Larry Hogan and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller called Friday on the University of Maryland Medical System to put an end to any conflicts of interest in business deals for members of the system’s board of directors.

From the Senate dais, Miller — the powerful, long-serving Calvert County Democrat — called the hospital system’s actions a “huge disaster” for the state with board members “self-dealing, benefiting from their relationship on the board.”

Shortly afterward, Hogan, the Republican governor recently elected to a second term, said the board’s behavior is “not just unseemly, it is appalling, and I have called for an immediate and full review.”
