Tahoe hospital board to review CEO conflict of interest issue Thursday
August 19, 2014
TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Tahoe Forest Hospital District board is meeting Thursday to determine if its CEO violated internal conflict of interest policies.
According to the special meeting's agenda, the board will convene at 10 a.m. and take public comment before going into a closed session to review Bob Schapper's performance.
The board is scheduled to reconvene in a public session after 1 p.m. and report any actions taken during closed session.
The meeting takes place in the hospital's Eskridge Conference Room at 10121 Pine Ave. in Truckee.
The hospital board reportedly began an internal investigation in connection with the district's conflict of interest policies in May.
News of the review came after Moonshine Ink published a July 11 report, raising examples of a potential conflict of interest with Schapper, and the hospital's involvement with Medical Practice Solutions Inc., a company operated by his wife, Marsha Schapper.
Schapper has defended himself in previous Sierra Sun stories, saying he was a "participant in name only in Medical Practice Solutions" and that he "factually had no involvement."
