USA Today reports: A Cleveland Clinic surgeon accused of sexually assaulting two patients was kept on staff at the prominent Ohio hospital during confidential settlement negotiations, according to a recent investigation by USA Today.

The newspaper reported Friday that Ryan Williams, a colorectal surgeon, was accused of anally raping two women during medical procedures in 2008 and 2009 — and that the hospital kept him on the payroll after the allegations, which Williams has “vehemently” denied.

The surgeon now works at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, where officials said Friday they did not know about the “disturbing allegations” when Williams was hired over the summer.
