Wikipedia states that Broward Health – formerly the North Broward Hospital District – is one of the 10 largesthealth systems in the U.S., and it is located in Broward County, Florida.
On Saturday, Nabil El Sanadi, president and CEO of Broward Health and its chief of emergency medicine, shot and killed himself at his Lauderdale-by-the-Sea condominium building, said the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
Broward Health Board Chairman David DiPietro confirmed the death late Saturday.
El Sanadi, an Egyptian immigrant, was appointed to Broward Health’s leadership position in December 2014, according to the Sun Sentinel newspaper. He often spoke out about social issues in the county, including the recent scourge of the synthetic drug flakka.
