Emails shed light on Haley’s role at Lexington hospital

Mar 25, 2011 12:19:00 AM - thestate.com
A newly released email exchange between then-state Rep. Nikki Haley and Lexington Medical Center’s chief executive raises new questions about Haley’s job duties for the Lexington hospital and her role in seeking state approval for its heart surgery center.

The email was contained in a second batch of hospital documents released this week in response to a public records request.

In it, Haley tells hospital CEO Mike Biediger that she could not attend a Sept. 11, 2008, hearing of the Department of Health and Environmental Control board. At that meeting, the hospital tried to convince the board to give it a “certificate of need” to open the heart surgery center.

“I will be unable to make the DHEC mtg this morning,” Haley wrote to Biediger. “Please let me know how the vote goes. My fingers are crossed.”

“Our amendment didn’t pass this morning,” Biediger responded later. “I’ll tell you more about it when I see you later.”
