FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Two more members of the Lutheran Health Network and Lutheran Hospital board quit Thursday, according to the News-Sentinel.

Chuck Surack, the founder of Sweetwater Sound, quit the board in a letter sent to network CEO Michael Poore and Dr. Mark King, president of the network and the Lutheran Hospital Board.

Surack says he “cannot agree with or condone what has happened to so many great people in our hospitals” in his resignation letter. He also thanked the doctors and nurses.

Tom Kelley, head of Kelley Automotive Group, also plans to resign, though he has not officially done so.

Former Lutheran CEO Brian Bauer was fired last month. That came after CHS, Lutheran’s parent company, rejected a $2.4 billion bid by a group of local physicians at Lutheran to buy out the network.

CHS previously announced plans to invest $500 million dollars into Lutheran Health Network.
