The former financial manager and former CFO of now-defunct Youngstown (Ohio) Osteopathic Hospital have been convicted on criminal charges after a two-week jury trial for their involvement in a fraud scheme. Richard White, 61, the former financial manager, was found guilty of 14 counts of Medicare fraud, money- laundering and wire fraud. The hospital's former CFO, Michael Suhadolnik, 48, who was hired by White, was found guilty of one count of wire fraud. White, Suhadolnik and three others were indicted in 2003 for allegedly conspiring to funnel money from the not-for-profit hospital to five mental health clinics in Florida from 1996 to 1998. The clinics also allegedly billed Medicare for inflated operations expenses. Raul Sanchez de Varona, a Florida lawyer, pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in October 2003. Two other defendants await trial. ...
