NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) - A northeast Nebraska hospital has parted ways with two of its top doctors who voiced concerns about the facility.

The Norfolk Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1Nj5tLr ) Dr. Chris Price and Dr. Joe Metcalf are no longer associated with Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk. Price resigned and Metcalf was fired.

Both doctors say they believe they lost their positions because they spoke out about patient care and hospital governance.

Hospital officials declined to comment on the personnel changes.

Price had been chief of the medical staff and anesthesiology medical director at the hospital. He had been at the Norfolk hospital since 2003.



Metcalf was medical director of the hospital’s child advocacy center, director of palliative care and director of best practices. He had worked at Faith Regional since 1996.
