Patients of Dr. Ajay Nehra File Suit against Rush University Medical Center
Mar 25 15
Cronin & Company Ltd. announced that patients of the Urologist Dr. Ajay Nehra are suing Rush University Medical Center over obstructing them from being treated by their chosen physician. These long-term dedicated patients have been with Dr. Nehra since he practiced at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and followed him to Rush University Medical Center, where he was appointed Chair of its Urology Department in March 2013. In September 2014, Rush improperly removed Dr. Nehra as Department Chair, but reaffirmed that his faculty privileges would continue uninterrupted. In response, Dr. Nehra filed suit (Northern District Illinois, Docket # 14-cv-7445) against Rush seeking damages for breach of contract and defamation. In retaliation, Rush sent Dr. Nehra a January 28, 2015 letter stating that it would not renew his faculty privileges when they expired, but also precipitously placing him on 'paid leave. Rush admitted that their decision not to renew Dr. Nehra's privileges was in reprisal for his contract lawsuit.
