Towson, MD-based St. Joseph's, cardiology group probed for fraud

Baltimore Sun, March 25, 2009

The federal agency responsible for investigating Medicare fraud and other health law violations, and whose probe of Towson, MD-based St. Joseph Medical Center led to a leadership shake-up last month, has ordered a group of cardiology specialists affiliated with the hospital to hand over business records. Midatlantic Cardiovascular Associates, a dominant cardiology practice at hospitals in the Baltimore area, received a subpoena from the Department of Health and Human Services in June—the month the agency made a similar demand of St. Joseph, documents show.
