Bay Windows: Why Fenway Community Health Center's directors and CEO need to quit now

UPDATE: Boswell has resigned or been fired.

It's not just that a Fenway employee has been accused of multiple instances of sexual assault and bullying, but that CEO Stephen Boswell covered it up and when the board of directors found out, they participated it in the coverup, Bay Windows writes.

This country owes you a debt of gratitude. Unfortunately most of you are grossly underpaid and will never be able to collect the pensions promised to you. That includes you Adam!

What's the Boston Globe talking about? How racist Boston is. Fort the thousandth time.

Which it is not. It is not.

You're a white guy.

You say that like there's something wrong with being a "white guy".
Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, JFK, FDR, they were all "white guys" as you call them.
And wouldn't the politically correct term be "European-American male"?

Not that there is "something wrong with being a white guy" , rather that there is a problem with a white person denying the reality that non-white Bostonians experience racism.

Oh, well, if some anonymous person on the internet says it, it must be true! Boston isn't racist anymore, everyone!

I actually am due a small pension from my early newspaper days. Fortunately for me, the company got out of newspapers a couple decades ago (they're in some sort of marketing now), so, as far as I know, that pension is safe (and the rest of my retirement money is in an IRA, with a small bit still left in an ESOP). What could happen to the Herald folks with pensions really sucks and is kind of unconscionable.

and never went back. Tbey seemed obsessed with HIV and badly screwed up my billing. Only saw a nurse practioner for an office visit, never a doctor.

I still go there, as I'm very happy with my care and my primary care doctor. There have been times where I have been scheduled with other doctors, but that's mostly to accommodate the urgency of my visit.

Fenway most certainly does screw up billing. Usually dealing with my health insurance company is something I dread but ironically I've actually depended on them to sort out problems Fenway billing was unable to resolve.

Why I don't go to fenway anymore. Horrible excuse for a doctor's office. They play the gay card all the time on why you should go there.. not worth the hassles I had for 10 years going there. Not worth it at all.

I go elsewhere and have never looked back on that decision. I'm glad I switched. As I tell people, until you've gone elsewhere and not had any billing snarfu's, or had to wait 8 weeks for a MH appointment, or you could get... wait for it... SAME DAY.. appointments with your PCP, you'll very quickly realize how poorly run Fenway is.

But since they are a 'gay doctor' service doesn't matter to most. Sorry if I am shelling out.. or my insurance company is.. 150 or more bucks for an appointment, I expect top notch service and I better meet with a doctor (and not a PA) if I schedule an appointment with a doctor.

I'll get off my soap box about Fenway, I could go on and on and on about that place. And needless to say, as I said below. Not surprised about Boswell, not surprised one bit. Fenway has been a horrible shitshow for well over a decade.

And now, a statement that CEO Boswell has lost his job, without any word of why or any apology for allowing Makadon's sexual misconduct to be ignored for so long.

Looks like the Bay Windows editorial urging donors to get involved has made an impact?

Fenway Health Communications are in great need of upgrading... for example indicate Fenway M.D.s with Certifications in geriatrics https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geriatrics

indicate experience in geriatrics at http://fenwayhealth.org/care/medical/providers/
