Please allow this to serve as a brief update on the story in last week’s Times-Independent newspaper about former Allen Memorial Hospital general surgeon, Dr. Kris Hayes. Moab Regional Hospital does not condone these actions and follows a “zero tolerance” policy around employee harassment.

The hospital administration and board of directors took immediate action as soon as they were informed about the incidents with Dr. Hayes.

We applaud those individuals who came forward to report the inappropriate behavior and testify in this case. Thank you very much.

—Robert Austin,

Chief Executive Officer, Moab Regional Hospital
