Sacred Heart Hospital: They took the term “cut-throat” business tactics literally

A two-year investigation of Sacred Heart Hospital resulted in the arrests this month of the hospital’s owner, Edward Novak, age 58 of Park Ridge, and five doctors on an array of charges, including conspiracy to defraud Medicare, among other crimes.

According to investigators, the small, 94-bed hospital located on Chicago’s west side was raided by the FBI last Tuesday morning. They carried out numerous boxes of evidence, as well as seizing approximately $2,000,000 in Medicare reimbursement payments from multiple bank accounts.

Authorities stated they made the decision to proceed quickly after learning that unnecessary procedures were being done and patient safety was at stake.

What would you say is appropriate punishment for people who cut holes in patient's throats in order to get rich? You tell us.

The indictment states that the death rate by the arrested doctors for patients undergoing  tracheotomies was three times higher than normal.

The Illinois Public Health Department released a statement that they are conducting a detailed inspection to determine whether Sacred Heart Hospital can properly treat patients at all.

Gary Shapiro, U.S. attorney in Cook County, said this: “When we learned of these procedures, we did everything we could to stop them from happening.”

The following physicians were taken into custody by federal agents:

Doctor Venkateswara Kuchipudi, age 66

Doctor Percy Conrad May Jr., 75

Doctor Subir Maitra, 73

Doctor Shanin Moshiri, 57

Doctor Kenneth Nave, 50.
