The CFO of North Broward Hospital District, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has resigned after the launch of a criminal investigation into "administrative irregularities," a hospital spokeswoman confirmed. She declined to discuss details. According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, top district officials have alleged that Patricia Mahaney, 42, tried to steer a computer software contract to a firm co-owned by her husband while she was CFO and tipped off developers led by her husband's business partner to buy a site on which the district was locating an office building. Mahaney oversaw a $720 million budget and $139 million in property taxes for the district, which runs four hospitals and 24 clinics in north Broward County. The hospital district named its corporate compliance officer, Mark Knight, to be its new CFO. -- by Patrick Reilly
