Bill Parrish, who resigned under pressure from his $300,000-a-year job as chief executive officer at King's Daughters' Medical Center in Ashland, Ky., is suing his former employer for what he calls termination benefits.
Parrish's claim was filed April 2 in Greenup County Court by Ashland attorney Wendell Roberts.
The action does not specify how much Parrish believes the hospital owes him. It says only that the medical center agreed to pay Parrish his annual salary plus life, health and dental insurance for a year if he resigned Jan. 3, 1996.
As a supplement to that agreement, Parrish said he was also due to be paid additional sums under terms of a severance package to be worked out later.
The 340-bed hospital was reserving comment on the lawsuit until after its legal department filed a response in court, said spokeswoman Julie Marsh.
