HALIFAX – The IWK Health Centre says it has received final payment from its former CEO and will not pursue legal action.
This come’s days after the organization said it would pursue legal action, as Tracy Kitch still owed roughly $10,000.
“Today, the IWK received a final payment from its former CEO, bringing the matter of any outstanding amounts owed to conclusion,” said IWK spokesperson Nick Cox in an emailed statement. “It is good to put this matter behind us as we turn our attention to supporting the review processes underway, and most importantly, continuing to support the great people at the IWK who work so hard every day to provide the best possible care to the women and children we serve.”
Kitch originally owed more than $47,000 after using her company credit card for personal expenses.
She resigned Aug. 23, with the organization’s CFO Stephen D’Arcy resigning last month.
