STROUD, Okla. -- Emergency Medical Services Authority CEO Stephen Williamson tendered his resignation during a special board meeting Tuesday morning.
EMSA accepted Williamson's resignation, which is effective Oct. 19. He had led the company since 1978.
Williamson recently came under fire in a federal lawsuit filed by the United States Department of Health and Human Services for allegedly accepting millions of dollars in bribes. EMSA and a Texas healthcare system are also defendants in the case.
EMSA's Board of Trustees met in Stroud to discuss "the employment, hiring, appointment, promotion, demotion, disciplining, termination or resignation of" Williamson.
The public meeting started at 9 a.m. in the Stroud Conference Center located at 218 West Main Street.
