A Whistle Blower’s Requiem
Michael K. Willis never imagined becoming a whistleblower when he accepted a position as the assistant administrator at Bradley Memorial Hospital. His memoir details the real-life events that led him to file a lawsuit against his boss under the Tennessee Whistleblower Act. This news rocked the small southern town located in the Appalachian Mountains’ western foothills, as the hospital was a renowned institution. Hospital Administrator Jim Whitlock was under indictment, and Willis’s ethical standards would not let him look the other way. He would not be blamed or become the scapegoat. Instead, he would act to save his job and ensure the truth prevailed.
