The board of directors of American Medical International on Tuesday accepted the resignation of Walter L. Weisman as chairman and chief executive of the hospital chain and named a sitting member of the board, Royce Diener, as interim successor. The special session of the board, held at the company's Beverly Hills headquarters, was prompted by a directors' committee that concurred with the company's four largest shareholders after they demanded that Weisman be replaced, the company said Monday.
