Among the revelations in the article:
- The loan was made in 2011, with Rak's stated intention to use the loan to buy the apartment and to open a joint fertility clinic.
- SPUH's relationship with Drexel that occasioned the loan ended in 2014. Rak had never purchased the Philadelphia apartment; the article doesn't say what happened to the fertility clinic plan.
- In 2015, more than three-quarters of the loan remained unpaid. The hospital board approved a repayment plan requiring that Rak complete repayment by December 2017, but included provisions that would forgive the loan under certain circumstances if Rak was no longer employed by SPUH.
- Several years ago, according to the article's sources, the hospital felt it necessary to launch an internal inquiry into the loan's status.
