One charged with embezzlement at Weymouth, MA, hospital

Boston Globe, January 28, 2010

An administrator was charged with embezzling $222,000 from Weymouth, MA-based South Shore Hospital, according to the U.S. attorney's office. Officials said William S. Burke stole donations to Dare to Care, a fund-raising program that benefited the hospital's cardiovascular center. Prosecutors say that from 2007 to 2009 he solicited contributions through the mail and diverted them to his bank account. He is also accused of stealing rebate money from medical vendors selling supplies to the hospital and depositing the money in the same account.
