Past job may be hurdle for mayoral candidate Walczak

Mayoral hopeful left Carney abruptly

Bill Walczak and the leaders of Steward Health Care could not agree: The new president of Carney Hospital wanted to create an obstetrics unit to attract more young families from Dorchester. The for-profit parent company rejected the idea.

The dispute led to Walczak’s ­departure from Carney last April, just 14 months after he took the job. At the time, he said little about what had happened, but as he embarks on a campaign for mayor of Boston, advisers and analysts say he will have to explain his brief tenure with Steward and why he left.
