A Greene County hospital administrator says a state Health Department investigation determined the facility followed state regulations in the referral of a pregnant woman, which is the basis for a federal lawsuit by a former employee.

“The (health department) report, which completely exonerated the Medical Center of any non-compliance issues, paves the way for us to move forward with continuing to provide quality health care for our community,” said Dr. Jami Diamond Boris, chief medical officer of Southwest Regional Medical Center.

Marie Gillispie, 49, of Center claims in the lawsuit that the hospital fired her on Nov. 1, 2012, days after she insisted management report the staff's failure to follow federal law in referring a pregnant woman to Uniontown Hospital. Boris said the state agency report shows that Gillispie's claims are groundless.

Her attorney, Noah Geary, and a health department spokesman couldn't be reached for comment.
