Feds charge former Edgewater Medical Center chief with obstruction

Chicago Tribune, May 30, 2008
The former owner of the bankrupt Edgewater Medical Center has been charged with trying to obstruct the government's efforts to collect $64 million in civil penalties he owes related to his involvement in a healthcare fraud scheme that federal attorneys say led to the North Side hospital's collapse. If convicted, Peter Rogan could face 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
