NY hospital pays $3.5M to settle charges it improperly recruited doctors

Syracuse.com, January 26, 2012
Cayuga Medical Center is paying $3.5 million to settle allegations it improperly used Medicare and Medicaid money to pay for expenses of private medical practices that employ doctors recruited to the area by the Ithaca hospital. The settlement resolves a whistleblower lawsuit filed on behalf of the state and federal governments, which alleged that the hospital recruited doctors to the area using financial agreements that violated the federal Stark Law.
