Tenet Healthcare Corp., Dallas, said it received a subpoena from the U.S. attorney in Memphis, Tenn., seeking documents regarding physician-relocation agreements at Tenet's St. Francis Hospital in Memphis since Jan. 1, 1999. Tenet said the subpoena was similar to requests made by federal prosecutors around the country. The company has announced previous subpoenas regarding physician-relocation agreements and medical directorships from U.S. attorneys in Los Angeles, New Orleans, San Francisco and El Paso, Texas. Meanwhile, a retrial is scheduled to begin next week in the criminal kickback case against Tenet's Alvarado Hospital Medical Center in San Diego, former Alvarado chief Barry Weinbaum and a Tenet subsidiary. -- by Vince Galloro
