Arizona State Hospital top psychiatrist has history of sexual misconduct, harassment

December 20, 2017

A patient inside the Arizona State Hospital raised concerns about the chief medical officer, a psychiatrist who has a history of sexual harassment and misconduct involving multiple women at another facility.

The Arizona Medical Board publicly reprimanded Dr. Steven Dingle for sexual misconduct involving three different female subordinates in the mid-1990s.  This led to Dingle's resignation from a psychiatric hospital.  Dingle was hired by the state after the reprimand.

According to ABC15 Arizona, a patient brought up this past discipline against Dingle during the public comment portion of a November 16th meeting of the Human Rights Committee, a board set up to address patient care and other concerns.
