State seeks removal of health center CEO


In a release, the agency said it would not renew a $224,800 annual grant agreement due to the recent events. A new grant agreement could be possible if MCCHC implements a remediation plan for vaccine administration and works with a consultant on licensure, credentialing and practice oversight.

The state health department will not, Black also wrote in his letter, enter into a new grant agreement with the health center until Malone is removed. An interim or replacement CEO must be approved by the state department of health.

On Monday, Malone said the board of directors is working to address the items in the letter, and indicated the contents of the letter wouldn’t impact the federal grant money the center receives. According to Malone, the state grant that the letter references totals about $239,000.

He also said, “I have no plans to go anyplace.”

Rosetta Minnefield, who chairs the health center board, said the board is to discuss the health department’s letter.

According to federal tax returns for the year 2010 — the most recent available — for the not-for-profit health center, Malone earned a $223,606 in compensation including a base salary of $175,956 along with a $250 bonus compensation and an additional $47,000 in compensation from a grant from the Office of Family Assistance.

Minnefield was among four on the board who received the letter from Black. The other three were Robert Anders, vice president of the board; Lori Alexander, treasurer of the board, and Scott Underwood, who is secretary of the board and editor of The Herald Bulletin.

Among other stipulations sought by the department of health:

◆ The removal of Ariel Su-Perkins as director of internal operations.

◆ The health center can offer no pain management program medications although pain management services can still be offered.

◆ A remediation plan to participate in the Indiana Immunization Division’s Vaccine for Children Program along with payment for misused vaccine.
