The physician at Manchester's Valley Street Jail has agreed not to practice medicine at any correctional facility while the Board of Medicine investigates allegations that inmates received substandard care.

The board issued an emergency order April 28 that temporarily suspended the license of Matthew Masewic, who has been physician at the Hillsborough County jail since 2009. In agreeing to the terms of the order, Masewic has not admitted to any misconduct.

Masewic has also been placed on paid administrative leave at New Hampshire Hospital in Concord, pending the outcome of the board's disciplinary proceeding.

A hearing scheduled for earlier this week was postponed. A new date has not yet been set.
