Queens Health Network said a lawsuit filed against its vice president and parent company is an attempt to cover up alleged wrongdoings on the part of the plaintiff, a former employee who was fired from his job as marketing director.
Calvin Hunter filed a lawsuit Nov. 1 in federal court in Manhattan against the city Health and Hospitals Corporation in what his attorney described as a whistle-blower case.
Hunter was fired back in March as the marketing director for Queens Health Network, which operates Elmhurst Hospital Center and Queens Hospital Center in Jamaica, and is a subsidiary of Health and Hospitals Corporation.
While Hunter claims he was fired after reporting allegedly improper conduct on the part of his supervisor, Queens Health Network released a statement in response to the complaint which tells a very different story.
