Dimensions chief resigns amid investigation

Kenneth Glover, the president and chief administrative officer of Dimensions Healthcare System, who has been a major focus of an internal investigation by the hospital system, has resigned, according to officials.

Glover, who served in his position for 18 months, submitted his resignation on Monday.

Dimensions Healthcare System hired a former Maryland attorney general and federal prosector in December to examine allegations that at least one top company executive traded promises of lucrative contracts with former Prince George’s County Executive Jack B. Johnson in exchange for his job at the hospital.

“The board became aware of troubling allegations involving former County Executive Jack Johnson’s relationship with Mr. Glover,” said C. Philip Nichols Jr., chairman of the Dimension board. “Mr. Glover submitted his resignation on February 27 and the board determined that this action was in the best interests of the corporation.”

Johnson was sentenced to seven years in federal prison in a widespread bribery scheme that involved pocketing hundreds of thousands of dollars from developers and business owners in exchange for favors. During wiretapped conversations, Johnson bragged about the number of jobs he’d arranged and the money he planned to make after he left office.

Nichols said the board will meet soon to find a replacement for Glover.
