Director of Region Ten ousted
The board of directors of Region Ten, the area's largest government-funded mental health service provider, fired its director yesterday. According to the account in the Daily Progress, which recently revealed that the director, Philip Campbell, failed to disclose a legislative report faulting the previous system he oversaw, the board's unanimous vote to oust Campbell was based on "arrogant management."Recent high-profile actions including locating one architecurally questionable treatment facility in a neighborhood opposed to it as well as the $4 million purchase of another property have raised questions about Campbell's leadership. The most recent brouhaha involved his failure to disclose a 1997 Massachusetts report alleging mistreatment of patients in a previous program under his control.
