Prominent Beaumont Donor Calls for Firing of CEO John Fox and his Key Executives

Mark Shaevsky, a prominent Beaumont donor and one of Michigan’s most accomplished attorneys, calls on state Attorney General Dana Nessel to demand that Beaumont Health’s board of directors fire CEO John Fox, COO Carolyn Wilson, and chief medical officer David Wood Jr.

Referring to Beaumont’s implosion that doctors and nurses say has imperiled patient care, Shaevsky warns in a passionate letter: “We saw what happened in Flint when appropriate government action was delayed.” The Flint reference is to the nearly 8,000 children in the city who were permanently harmed by lead poisoning because of Lansing’s failure to protect the local water supply.

In his meticulous five-page letter, Shavesky also discredits the arguments Fox has advanced to justify merging Beaumont into Advocate Aurora Health, a big Chicago-based hospital network that has never attracted doctors of the caliber and distinction of Beaumont’s.

Shaevsky’s letter to Nessel is dated Sept. 4. He shared the letter with other donors and some Beaumont board members on Wednesday. Deadline Detroit obtained a copy of the letter but agreed not to identify the author, who has judiciously avoided the public limelight throughout his career. However, Crain’s Detroit Business in a story on Thursday about the letter identified Shaevsky as the author.
