Charles N. Pollack, M.D. (Dr. Pollack) appeals the trial court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of Sisters of St. Francis Health Services, Inc. d/b/a St. Francis Hospital & Health Centers f/k/a St. Francis Hospital & Health Centers, Inc. (St. Francis) on Dr. Pollack’s complaint for damages resulting from a claimed breach of contract over the termination of his medical staff privileges at St. Francis. On appeal, Dr. Pollack presents six issues for our review, which we consolidate and restate as: did the trial court properly grant summary judgment in favor of St. Francis?
Conclusion (slip op. at 15): Finding no dispute in the material facts, we conclude that the trial court properly granted summary judgment in favor of St. Francis on Dr. Pollack’s complaint for breach of contract.
Key Analysis (slip op. at 14): Dr. Pollack, by his failure to provide the requested information and the fact that his leave of absence had expired, was deemed to have voluntarily resigned and relinquished his privileges. Dr. Pollack’s failure to cooperate with St. Francis, not any action by St. Francis, resulted in the termination of his medical staff privileges.
