More fallout from Ornge scandal
There is more fallout from the Ornge scandal at Queen's Park.
The Toronto Star is reporting that the physician-in-chief of Mount Sinai hospital, Dr Tom Stewart received a consulting contract of $75,000 a year at Ornge but the embattled agency says it hasn't been able to confirm the work performed.
The report also says the additional payments were not disclosed on the provincial sunshine list that tracks how public dollars are spent.
At Mount Sinai, Dr Stewart earns $607,000 a year. The Star says over seven years, he was paid $436,000 by Ornge.
Stewart says Ornge got fair value, citing how he helped out on clinician recruitment, research development, and better critical-care system integration.
