Prohibited Activities Act 1.
(a-5) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a), at least one member of the
board of directors may be a member of a district hospital medical staff.
(b) Should it appear to the appointing authority that any member of the board of directors
of a Hospital District may be disqualified, guilty of misconduct or malfeasance in
office or unwilling or unable to act, the appointing authority shall notify the member
of that fact in writing and it shall then be the duty of the member to show cause
why he should not be removed from office. Any such person shall be given a hearing by the circuit court and, after such hearing,
if the circuit court finds such a charge should be sustained, it shall remove the
person so charged from office, and a vacancy shall thereupon exist for the unexpired
