OhioHealth, cardiology doctors reach deal
Doctors who ran OhioHealth Corp.'s cardiology practice in Springfield before becoming Ohio State University employees will be banned from practicing medicine in Clark County through October 2013, under a consent judgment reached late Monday. They also must pay OhioHealth a total of $125,000 as part of the settlement in Franklin County Common Pleas Court. OhioHealth, which includes Riverside, Dublin Methodist, Grant Medical Center and other hospitals, sued the cardiologists' independent practice, Heart Specialists of Ohio, on Nov. 1 after the cardiologists announced they were joining OhioHealth competitor Wexner Medical Center of Ohio State.
