The CEO and CFO of Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital in Maryland Heights, Mo., have resigned after the hospital board discovered the executives violated the hospital’s paid time off policy, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The hospital board requested and accepted the resignations of president and CEO Lauri Tanner and vice president and CFO Jean Bardwell, effective May 2, according to the report.

In a statement to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the hospital said the two executives were allegedly paid for time off “to which they were not entitled.” The hospital said the board is demanding Ms. Tanner and Ms. Bardwell repay the hospital, but it did not disclose the amount of inappropriate reimbursement the executives allegedly received.

The board’s executive committee initially identified the potential irregularities, and the board subsequently launched an investigation, which allegedly revealed the two executives violated hospital policy, according to the report.

To help prevent a similar issue from occurring in the future, the hospital has put corrective measures in place.

Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital COO Brett Moorehouse has been named interim president and CEO, and a hospital board member will serve as interim CFO, according to the St. Louis Business Journal.
