Former hospital CEO pleads guilty to $300,000 kickback scheme
He should have gotten his head examined—before defrauding his hospital. A former CEO of the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan told a judge Thursday that he has severe memory problems as he pleaded guilty in a $300,000 kickback scheme. "I just don't remember a lot of things," John Reynolds, 64, told Manhattan Federal Magistrate Judge Debra Freeman before copping to wire fraud and lying to federal investigators. "I wish my wife was here. She could let you know for sure." Freeman asked Reynolds, who ran the prestigious hospital from 1997 to 2006, if he had any trouble recalling what happened earlier in the proceeding. "Not that I'm aware of," he quipped.
