David Levine (medical administrator)
David Levine is a health administrator from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Bachelor in Civil Engineering, McGill University, Master in Biomedical Engineering from Imperial College of Science and Technology, London, England, Master's degree in Health Administration from the University of Montreal.
In 1998 he was the centre of heated public controversy when he was appointed CEO of the new, combined, Ottawa Hospital. The controversy had nothing to do with his medical qualifications; it was centred on the fact that he had been a member of the Parti Québécois. The controversy was the subject of the book by Randal Marlin, The David Levine Affair.
