Greenwich Hospital Is Becoming A Tattered Angel On Highly Compensated Frank Corvino's Watch

Greenwich Hospital president; and CEO Frank Corvino, who receives a salary package of $168,493, has allowed the town healthcare institution to slide into debt. Mr. Corvino's compensation has caused some eyebrows to be raised in town, given the Greenwich Hospital's dire financial situation and continued employee cutbacks. Every department at Greenwich Hospital is suffering, because of Mr. Corvino's lack of leadership When a town resident goes to get a "state of the art" CAT Scan in the radiology department of Greenwich Hospital; the poor unfortunate patient is taken to dressing room that is smaller than one found at Macy's. In this bare bones dressing room are four 6 inch wide lockers that can only hold a ladies purse if it is squeezed in sideways as the door is slamed. Once undressed the dear lady of Greenwich is offered an ill fitting and tattered hospital gown with only three of the four sting ties attached. But this problem is solved by the radiologist telling every patient getting a CAT Scan to put on two raggedy gowns. One is attached in the front and one is attached in the back. One lady was overheard saying,"If Greenwich Hospital can no longer afford decent gowns, then they should cut some of the fat from Frank's big fat payday." I guess we had better not tell this lady that Mr. Corvino's Executive VP raked in $791,085 and his Senior VP took home $716,899 as she sits next to a stained carpet. Maybe the ladies of Greenwich society should start bringing their own gowns to Greenwich Hospital's radiation department. The sad truth is that we all know that Mr. Corvino is seeking even more compensation this year; from the Angel of Greenwich that is starting to look tired and tattered around the edges. Greenwich Hospital's solicitation efforts have raised over $140 million from our community in recent years, and yet Mr. Corvino can't afford to buy new gown for ladies getting a CAT scan.

Meteorologist, wife charged in domestic incident

New York City weatherman Bill Evans has reported on hurricanes, blizzards and heat waves for WABC-Channel 7 News for the past 15 years, but now he may be facing some stormy weather off the air as well. Both the Emmy-winning meteorologist and his estranged wife, Dana Evans, are facing disorderly conduct and third-degree assault charges following an altercation at their Old Greenwich home on May 4.
Married for 19 years with four children, the pair filed for divorce in May 2012......
....
In the time between the incident and the filing of the complaint, she had sought out services from a local domestic violence center, her attorney, Mark Sherman, said in a public statement.
Bill Evans, 52, was summoned to the Greenwich Police and turned himself in on Thursday to answer a warrant filed as part of the investigation. The next day Dana Evans was similarly summoned on a warrant for identical charges stemming from the same incident......

....Russell remained optimistic that a speedy resolution to the case could be reached.
"We expect that Bill will be exonerated and this case will be quickly forgotten," he said. "The Greenwich Police have informed us their investigation is continuing and we will see this process through until Bill's name is cleared."
Sherman had similarly high hopes for the outcome of Tuesday's court appearance
"Obviously divorces can get emotional," Sherman said, "and we expect Dana to be cleared of these charges in due time. The safety, privacy and welfare of her family continue to be her primary concern,"
WABC-Channel 7 News declined to comment on the personal affairs of their employee.
"We are reviewing the situation and have no further comments at this time," a WABC spokesperson said.
