William Newton Board Of Trustees Extends Administrative Leave For Hospital CEO


William Newton Hospital CEO Ben Quinton will remain on paid administrative leave, its board of trustees decided Thursday.


According to a press release from the Winfield-based hospital Friday, the leave has been extended for a period of up to 14 days.

Quinton was first put on paid administrative leave on June 30.

At the monthly meeting on Thursday, the board called a closed executive session to discuss non-elected personnel. The board voted unanimously to take this action after reconvening in an open session.

Quinton joined William Newton Hospital as CEO in March 2013.
