Greenwich Hospital CEO Frank Corvinno Reigns Over Fraud, Waste And Abuse

Greenwich Hospital has been under steady decline over the last decade, despite the hospital receiving over 140 million in very generous philanthropic donations in recent years. CAN THE PHARM BOY STOP THE DECLINE AT GREENWICH HOSPITAL? Many in Greenwich are starting to wonder if Greenwich Hospital President Frank Corvino's pharmacy administration degree is adequate to properly lead a Yale affilated hospital with 174 patient beds, 32 bassinets, 1,910 employees, and a $324 million operating budget. As a a 14-year-old stock boy who worked at the corner pharmacy, blocks from his Bronx home Frank Corvino At 16 this teenager from Arthur Avenue was filling prescriptions for the pharmacist. Mr. Corvino graduated from Fordham's College of Pharmacy in 1971. Now the Pharm Boy is in charge of healthcare facility situated on nearly 10 acres, Greenwich Hospital (along with Yale-New Haven and Bridgeport Hospitals) is in the Yale New Haven Health System. Greenwich Hospital annually provides over 50,000 patient days of care, and has over 13,000 admissions, and over 43,000 visits to its emergency room. Greenwich Hospital annually also performs over 14,000 ambulatory and over 9,000 Operating room procedures. BUT, IS THE PHARM BOY IN OVER IS HEAD In an magazine article about Mr. Corvino taking helm of Greenwich Hospital, the following was written: "In 1988, when Corvino was looking for different challenges, he applied to be GH's chief operating officer. Once he arrived, though, "I thought, 'Boy, did I make a mistake.'" An example of how the Fordham College of Pharmacy graduate is unable to properly manage Greenwich Hospital can be found in the Greenwich Hospital Outpatient Clinic that serves towns poor and mentally disabled patients. One of the so-called indigent of working class Greenwich Hospital Outpatient Clinic patients is the decades long New York Entrepreneur who owns the Tequila Blue Restaurant And Bar at 139 North Main Street in Port Chester, NY.
