BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - The Bozeman Health Board of Trustees has fired the hospital’s president and CEO.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (http://goo.gl/OL4c9m ) Kevin Pitzer was fired Wednesday after the board said it found his conduct “inconsistent with the values and future of our organization.” The board did not say what specific incident led to the firing, but Pitzer confirmed to the Chronicle on Friday that it was due to a 1983 conviction.

Then 23 years old, Pitzer was convicted of three felony counts of theft for embezzling about $100,000 from an Iowa residential and day-care facility for the disabled where he was a bookkeeper and administrative assistant.

He says he is disappointed with the board’s decision, and he fully reimbursed his former employer.

Pitzer was hired by Bozeman Health in February 2013.
