Dr. Alter's Contract Not Renewed with Driscoll Childrens Hospital

No new contract for pediatric oncologist

By Neal Falgoust Caller-TimesAugust 18, 2005

"A local group of pediatric physicians has decided not to renew an employment contract with Dr. Nejemie Alter, one of the physicians who treated cancer patient Katie Wernecke.
In a written statement issued Wednesday, officials at Driscoll Children's Hospital said the cancellation of his contract, which expires at the end of September, would not affect his ability to treat patients at the hospital. He will be allowed to admit patients and can treat them at the hospital’s cancer clinic." Copyright 2005, Caller.com. All Rights Reserved. August 18, 2005.
