Saint Joseph's University announced Thursday that serious cardiovascular issues will prevent its new president from stepping into the job. Father Joseph O'Keefe was chosen as the Roman Catholic institution's president in January, but a routine pre-employment physical uncovered the medical issues, the statement said. Father O'Keefe was due to start May 18, but instead will take a year's leave from Boston College, where he was dean of education.
