Meet Akram Boutros Wife, Suzanne Boutros
Suzanne Boutros first met Akram Boutros at St. John’s University. Soon falling in love, the two went on to get married on December 5, 1986.
Now, as of 2022, the lovebirds have been married for over 36 years and are still going strong.
Even when Akram was first hired as a consultant to help St. Vincent’s Hospital-Manhattan in Cleveland, Suzanne would often make time to visit him. At the time, she even said that the new job is a great fit for her husband, and with their three daughters soon to be all out on their own, it will be “a chance to hit the reset button” for the two of them.
“Why not [start over] in a way that’s exciting and challenging,” she remarked before adding that it was such a positive step in the right direction. Infact, she was more than excited to meet people in Cleveland leaving the Northeast and New York where “it’s a little dog-eat-dog.”
Talking a little more about her husband’s passion for work, Suzanne said that Akram really worked hard. “We’re all scrambling to keep up with him, to be honest. He’s made changes and he’s going to keep making more changes, and I think they’ll be good for Metro,” she added.
Also, naturally, she sided with her husband when he was accused of giving himself unauthorized bonuses over four years in 2022. The husband-wife stood in a union as they said, the firing was retaliatory, and that Akram recently exposed board misconduct in its push for a new CEO, led by board Chair Vanessa Whiting.
As for St. Vincent’s Hospital-Manhattan board, they claimed that they took the actions “mindfully and deliberately but with sadness and disappointment.” Despite recognizing the wonderful things Dr. Boutros has done for the hospital, they said that CEOs shouldn’t self-evaluate and determine their entitlement to an additional bonus and at what amount.
To clear his name, Akram later even repaid the money with interest and self-reported to the Ohio Ethics Commission.
