Opinion: Hospital CEO paid $60,000 bribe to senator to keep hospital open

Forbes, January 5, 2012

Apparently, Aquino wanted to keep his job—oh, and, sure, also keep the hospital open so that it could pay him. What was Aquino's alleged solution to the thorny issue of his institution's closing? According to prosecutors and plea agreements, Aquino caused Parkway Hospital to make $60,000 in payments to Adex Management Inc. ("Adex").
